American Divisiveness On Display Over Saturn Furlough

Even I, a car nut and local Middle Tennessean, have been surprised by the general rancor around the recent furlough of United Auto Workers (UAW) union employees at GM Spring Hill, nee Saturn. As you may recall, all UAW employees are getting 95% of their base pay for the year or so that it will take to retrofit the Spring Hill plant, even though they do not have to actually work.

And they say that the union is good for GM. Right. Good if you thrive with a blood sucking leech attached to your side. A really big leech.

Anyhoo, check out the name-calling 'debate' here. Interesting.
