Auto guys try to squeeze blood from a stone

I've been generally following this story, since I have two friends who are auto workers. They have generally enjoyed very high wages for little intellectual stress, and have been happy with the arrangement. With Chrysler slowly dying, they don't get the shifts they want, and things are more gloomy.

Like I've said before, there's not a speck of Ontario brains in this whole auto thing. We've got to decide what our advantage is, for the next 20 years. We've been living of low wage costs forever, and this has come to an end (which it always does!). Oh well, our government will solve everything for us, we just have to sit back and wait....
