*VIDEO INCLUDES STRONG LANGUAGE*
The unions are starting to feel the pinch, as companies are now indicating that they can no longer make concessions. This means that either union membership has to give up some of their benefits and pay, or everyone gets canned.
On March 31st, NUMMI, the UAW-represented joint venture between Toyota and General Motors, will be closing its doors in California, throwing another 4,700 United Auto Workers out of work.
With 80% of the UAW members upset with their union, this past Sunday, the Union of Ailing Workplaces (aka UAW) held a membership meeting that turned into a shouting match between rank-and-file members and their union leadership.
At one point, one UAW leader (identified as Javier Contreras) yelled at the crowd, telling them to “…Shut the f*ck up, you motherf*ckers!…”
Things got so bad, that UAW leaders had to call the police to restore order.
Millions of jobs are being lost in America, and if a union member thinks he/she is somehow immune to the effects of our sinking economy then they are delusional.Â The reality is that companies can no longer afford to pay the benefits, pensions, and wages for work that is worth half the price.
Either union members get real or they will be walking the streets looking for jobs in short order.
