    Autoworkers get Election Day off to vote

    The Irony of Mitt being the son of a car guy, isn't lost on me.

    Jeep lies might be the tipping point.

    In any case we have a few real dumb holidays

    ... election day should be a national holiday and replace a lame one.

    couldn't agree more...

    OT: My choice is Columbus Day. Why on Earth do we celebrate a dude who 'discovered' a place where people already lived?

    dumbest holiday

    Columbus Day isn't a national holiday and some states do not observe it either. Berkley CA instead celebrates Indigenous People’s Day, LOL. I'm surprised Cambridge MA hasn't picked up it's queue on this.

    I know its a contractual thing so it's not really a big deal.......I just think the UAW is a joke and the biggest reason for the underachievement of the US auto industry.

    UAW are the guys who design the cars, decide how many to produce, how to market them and how to distribute them.. yea they are responsible for just about everything....

    Well, for a "dude" who discovered a land already found and all the savagery that he wrought, I'm very grateful to him for starting what we have today.

    I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. God bless you Christopher Columbus!

    Actually, none of those who make the decision you describe are members of the UAW. Only those who work in the factories are members of the UAW.

    Marketing, designers/engineers, planning, finance, distrubtion, etc. are not union workers.

    When the UAW goes on strike, none of the "corporate" employees honor that strike. They're all salaried employees and non-union.

    Don't be silly. UAW is just the people who are receiving about $5,000 per American car sold to pay for benefits for their retired workers.

    the UAW is responsible for providing the labor to assmble the vehicles
