Now that we have all the economists blazing away, I have a question that's been bugging me.Was watching the news yesterday and saw a speel on GM's impending bankruptcy. They show plant closings and lost jobs, lost pension and retirement funds. They interviewed workers who were walking out of the plant for the last time. They were all bitter that they had worked their whole lives for a company and were building for their retirement and now they are left out in the cold, zippo, zilch. How to find another job that probably doesn't exist. Seems to me that back in the sixties Bobby Kennedy and the Attorny General following him prosecuted Jimmy Hoffa and Sam Giancana for stealing from the teamster pension funds. I thought laws were passed to ensure the integrity of these funds. Maybe that's why Bobby Kennedy was murderd. So what's happened to the law that protects these funds that are garnished from wages of workers from corporate marauding? Media made a big deal that this was going to have a huge effect on our economy. GM happened to be a multinational company. Does this mean that workers in other countries get screwed the same as workers in the US? If so I would like to warn Canadians to watch your rears, pass laws regulating the multinational companies, so if they don't protect your workers, your govt will. I was thinking mainly of our Canadian friends, maybe all the African slaves they hauled in don't count. Sorry I apologize.
