gary --you state that the wages are not TOO high. just to clarify -- i asked if someone could verify that the uaw line workers make nearly $100,000. a year, 15 to 20 years ago, and that it must be over that now. as well, one stated that the pension is 95% of their pay. that would make a uaw pension of at least $95,000 / year. the numbers just seem high. according to the noise on t.v. about this, the line workers make about $28/ hour. over a year, that's $58k.i'm not figuring overtime, as there can't have been much overtime in big 3 assembly plants for the last couple of years. even with some overtime, the numbers would be tens of thousands of dollars off. i'm going on the assumption that the $28./hr. figure is correct. could a uaw line worker clarify these numbers ? i'm assuming that this hasn't happened yet, because of all the uaw bashing going on. i guess it's how one looks at. if one makes 35, or 40k., then that would make it a lot of money. the last number of posts have been intelligent, and civil -- and that makes for good debate.
