And how are they going to feed their families and pay their mortgages now that they have no jobs along with the office people and the managers as well?
As I noted before, based on the Union's own propaganda, the Company should have been liquidated when it first went into bankruptcy in 2004. Its continued operation since has only prolonged the agony.
Sorry it just does not fly Gustavo. The Union leaders had a choice, accommodate and possibly save the company or lose the jobs. The Union leaders, who can care less, chose to lose the jobs. It does not affect their income or power.
I would also add, that I don't believe the company was savable. It is obvious it was not savable in 2004 and things are no better now.
I hope that everyone affected has learned something and get a job quickly, although that is problematically with the rank amateurs we have running things in this country. But hey, we may soon reach the old Soviet Union's solution, the Government will pretend to pay everyone and in return everyone will pretend to work.
That was my question, HOW would they accommodate? It would've been balanced on the backs of the working man.
As workers all we have is our labor. We don't own the capital, the machines, the factories or the supplies.
Thank God for the unemployment benefits these folks will receive while they look for work.
