Toddler rules, union style

February 14, 2011

Apparently the adults aren’t running the show at the UAW – From Michelle Malkin

In 2009, when Barack Obama announced that the federal government was assuming a 60% stake in General Motors, the president called the American people “reluctant shareholders” in that company.

As shareholders, when might we expect a dividend check?…

DETROIT – General Motors Co. will pay more than $189 million in profit-sharing to 48,000 U.S. hourly workers and millions more in performance bonuses to salaried employees, according to company documents obtained by The Associated Press

What’s so amusing about this situation (given we’re not getting dividends) is that my“Musical chairs” between unions/private industry post from last week is playing out in spades

Union management has a rather different idea.  UAW president Bob King wants to “reclaim some of the $7,000 to $30,000 in concessions each worker gave up since 2005 to help the U.S. automakers survive.”  This would, of course, kill the auto companies again in fairly short order, requiring another massive taxpayer resurrection.  It would eliminate a lot of administrative overhead if every American taxpayer just cut a check directly to the UAW.  Alternatively, if you live in the warm South, you could volunteer your house as a summer retreat for union auto workers.

A convenient word replace documents the situation we are under

Remember the toddler rules of ownership?

1. If I UAW like it, it’s mine. UAW’s

2. If it’s in my UAW’s hand, it’s mine the unions

3. If I UAW can (get the government to) take it from you, it’s mine. UAW’s

4. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine. UAW’s

5. If it’s mine UAW’s, it must NEVER appear to be yours in anyway.

6. If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces areUAWs  mine.

7. If it looks just like UAW’s mine, it is mine.UAW’s

8. If I saw it first, it’s mine. UAW’s

9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes UAWs mine.

10. If it’s broken, it’s yours. the USA’s/the taxpayers
