Strike!! They have been showing the picket lines at our local GM plant here in Lordstown, Ohio. The strike started at about noon today. This is an area where the unemployment rate is about 7 percent and even $8 entry level jobs are hard to find. I think they said that the UAW is out on strike in places like Michigan also. I have a friend who was an accountant for GM who told me about 8 years ago that the average GM wage was $37 per hour. I guess they will never quit - until they run GM into bankruptcy like they did Delphi - who is struggling to get out of bankruptcy.
