Unions are Killing America, Part 1022.

Ive said it before, I will say it again, the Unions are killing America.

DETROIT — (AP) [1]The United Auto Workers has set a deadline of 11 a.m. Wednesday to agree on a new contract with Chrysler LLC or workers could strike.
The deadline, confirmed Monday morning by Chrysler spokeswoman Michele Tinson, gives negotiators less than 48 hours until a strike could be called.Bargainers returned to the table Monday morning after spending most of the weekend in negotiations.

Just because a deadline has been set doesn’t mean a strike will happen, Tinson said. The union also could extend the contract hour-by-hour as negotiations continue, she said.

And check this:

Chrysler pays its workers an average of $75.86 per hour in wages, pension and health care costs, the highest among the Detroit automakers.

Read that again: $75.86 per hour in wages, pension and health care costs 

What is the strike over? Job security. These workers are afraid Chrysler’s going to move their jobs overseas. Now what incentive would they have to do that?  (Shake of the head) Is there anyone (besides the union workers themselves) who doesn’t understand that the biggest threat to the jobs of these union workers is their own huge money demands?
