It's a separate issue entirely from Wisconsin's fiscal woes.

Now maybe you can explain how a company like Honda which started out making lawn mowers as grown to be one of the largest auto companies in the world. Then add their motorcycle line, outboard engines, and all the rest. They kicked our ass in engineering and labor, and that has been proven on almost every damn thing made in a factory. Better foreign engineering and labor as put us to shame.
So keep praising your unions, but they are in the stone age. The only place left for a union is sucking off the tits of governments.
However--there is no doubt that the reason the taxpayers of this nation bailed out GM and others to the tune of BILLIONS because the Union did run them into the ground. The auto union was too powerful.
There is no one in this country that can retire with 80% of their base pay--with medical benefits coming out their ears. And that's why they crashed.
And if you don't think that government workers can do the same with state budgets then you need to re-think the situation.
The obvious choices for Wisconsin are: Lay off thousands of state workers--including teachers--thereby swelling the size of class-rooms--or take the cut in their cadillac plans and retirements--or contribute more to them. There is no other choice.
Does anyone know how much of Wisconsins budget is public sector salaries?
I do know Obama promissed no no-bid contracts,
but most contracts have been delt to friends and contributers to Democratic party.
So much for honesty and efficiency with OPM. What else would you expect from Liar in Chief!!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't help the slight tangentiality here.:rolleyes:
It was Japan's engineering that beat us, that's a fact. Of course we beat them in other things, but when it came to cars and the like they win hands down.
