No doubt Jake. (I dont support Bush, you know that. ) Jake, Youll be getting a PM when I reach that 30K.
Also, Ive been trying the whole “not worrying about politics” thing latley, its going pretty well.
But anyway…As far as the unions…dont get me started. The UAW workers are some of the stupidest bunch there is.
My family (my grandparents, uncles, and dad) all work(ed) at GM. Some of the stories are amazing(they dont even work).
Example? My dad worked for GM, was a big union supporter (i think most unions are completley dumb, but whatever). He would clock in to work, and then? WALK OUT TO HIS TRUCK and SLEEP for 12 hours getting PAID 36.75 an hour with time and 1/2 after 8 hours. He has a radio, if they buzz him in, then he walks in as if hes been there the whole time. (They usually never buzz him in)
This is not a isolated incident, EVERYBODY DID IT! And yet… we wonder why these EVIL FOREIGN companies who actually make their WORKERS WORK are being successful. In my opinion, many Americans need to WAKE UP and see how STUPID stuff like this is. You cant possibly expect a business to do well when they are paying workers like this.
I never planned on working at GM because I personally hate the idea of working in a factory, so none of this really dissapoints me. I think its kind of funny watching these UAW idiots run around talking about WHAT THE GOVERNMENT MIGHT DO?!? Must be a sad life not having your own life in control, and having to worry about what somebody else is going to do for your own sake. I never want to be like that.
I only can speak from personally experience about what goes on at GM, because I have no connections to Ford or anything, but yeah… GM is a JOKE!!! However, Im sure they are doing much better now that the Federal Government is running the show.
