Lazy and greed, that sums it up. Ever know anyone who worked at GM on 2nd or 3rd shift? Some would take turns covering for one another as they headed for the bars, slept the night away on hidden mattresses, played cards or just goofed off.
I know of a plant several years ago, when things were booming, that had 400 people with no job description so they hung out at the cafeteria or slept or read the paper. The plant never modernized their equipment as efficiency was not an issue with hundreds of people milling around. Now they are getting hammered by modern automated Japanese and even European transplants. I asked how could management roll over and let this happen, and was told they were not too worried as they were retiring soon with fat packages of their own.
Who can forget the crushing strikes of the past, think Janesville Wisconsin SUV/truck plant when both were hot sellers. GM was losing tens of million per day during the strike, and had no choice but to cave to the endless demands. Most retirees are making more in retirement than you do working.
Lets not forget the top dogs with their fat multi million bonuses in good times and bad, their jetting to FL for golf weekends, showing up in Washington in their Gulfstreams with their hands out. Die you gravy sucking pigs!!
There I feel better
"Let them eat cake", greedy sob's, all of em".
