American taxpayers may have to pay for thousands of laid off auto workers to literally do nothin

Thousands of laid-off auto workers get paid $31 an hour to sit around and do nothing all year under a controversial program that could continue even if American taxpayers bail out the American auto industry.

The program, called "Jobs Banks," has been around for 24 years. Some of the employees at jobs banks choose to do community service, but others do crossword puzzles and watch TV all day -- or just stare at a wall. If you're a laid-off auto worker, it's what comes with your pink slip, thanks to a deal struck in 1984 between the United Auto Workers and the Big Three carmakers.

The program is likely to continue if Congress approves a $25 billion bailout of the industry. But if the automakers go bankrupt, some analysts say, they may be able to eliminate the program, which would abruptly eliminate benefits to the workers in it.

Lets send healing light to all those poor souls at GM who will be off for Jan and half of Feb at something like 90 percent of their wages.

I bet the Dominican is nice this time of year.

Some will be suffering the shutdown with Pina Colada's while the rest of the US will tank with post Christmas sales numbers.

The American slaves will pay thousands for laid off workers. The rest of us will laugh and keep living our lives.

You're barking up the wrong tree here people...

Thread: FORGET GM! Pentagon has incurred national debt and cant explain how
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand.

Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"


-Revelation 6:5, 6:6
