FOX News lies about auto worker hourly wages

FOX News yesterday proclaimed on the web:

The new GM deal would raise labor costs from $55 to $60 an hour, a 9 percent hike, according to a study of the deals from Kristin Dziczek of the Center for Automotive Research and Art Schwartz, a former GM labor executive and president of Labor and Economic Associates. The union contract at Ford also reached the $60 hourly rate over the next four years, a 5 percent increase from its current rate of $57. Those hikes pale in comparison with Chrysler, where average hourly wages will spike nearly 20 percent from $47 to $56.

Imagine “average hourly wages of $56” at Chrysler and equally high “labor costs” at GM and Ford. That $56 an hour times 40 hours times 52 weeks, equals $116,480 a year! What a great job – fantastic pay!

The turkeys at FOX News consider this the reason cars cost so much and will cost even more. They even printed (and so authorized by moderation) this comment on the website story:

  Well, here comes the NEXT set of lost Manufacturing Jobs in America.   Either it will come by NON-USA cars being made overseas because of the price or More Robots will be doing their job.

I have watched these Assembly lines making cars on TV  – – Not sure it takes a $124,800 (no overtime) person to do it (plus the best Insurance and benefits, probably puts it over $150,000) to do what I saw.

I am happy for them but everyone must be realistic  – – you can price yourself out of a job if you  get too greedy.     This sounds a bit greedy.  Not sure it takes a Master degree in engineering to do this job, and I know lots of Engineers that would love to make this much.

And this gem:

Democrat definition of a living wage. Making $60/hour to do a job that a trained monkey could do, soon to be replaced by robots.

And this one:

Union workers are remarkably stupid.  History is going to repeat itself here.  Unions priced workers right out of work before and are well on their way to doing it again.  But union bosses keep raking it in, don’t they?  Union workers will get what they deserve.

However, the article is a big lie….

MBTA promotes hatred of Israel and Jews in Boston

Approved by Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA)

Rejected by Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA)

The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority approved the display of an anti-Israel ad it had previously rejected – top image. The ad below was rejected. One rips Israel. The other states a fact. But Boston has a very anti-Israel climate – colleges, even synagogues routinely favor the “oppressed” Arabs over the terrorized Jews.

The hate-Israel poster, which features a large photograph of a child, accuses Israel’s military of using US tax dollars to kill 2,000 Palestinian children since September 2000, and calls for the end of US military aid to Israel.

It is one of three ads initially approved by the MBTA in June 2014, but later removed. The governing body of the state’s public transportation system then said the ads violated its policy against language that demeans or disparages individuals or groups.

An advocate of supposed Arab victim-hood by Jews, Richard Colbath-Hess (listing on Google as http://www.rcolbathhess.com/  79 Amory St, Cambridge, MA 02139 (617) 354-6471), a board member of Palestine Advocacy Project and a Jewish-American faculty member at the University of Massachusetts claimed,

Hess

R, Hess

American tax dollars help the Israeli government maintain a brutal military occupation, which has denied the Palestinian people their basic rights for decades.

These ads show what Israel’s occupation and apartheid really look like, and it is important for Americans to see that.

The American Civil Liberties Union challenged the initial rejection on behalf of the Palestinian rights organization, Palestine Advocacy Project. The group used to be called Ads Against Apartheid, proclaims that the poster is a form of First Amendment speech and should be allowed in public. (And the pro-Israel poster  on top of this page is not?) It does not violate the MBTA policy against demeaning ads, according to Sarah Wunsch, deputy Continue reading →

Trump card is the minimum wage. My bet: he just lost any chance of winning the Republican Presidential nomination

serfIn the Middle Ages an average duke or earl’s property was about 38,000 acres, and the “little people” grew the food and paid taxes to these aristocrats of yore, and the humble were called serfs and lived like dogs to support the castles for the very few.

The present crony capitalism is different. Our aristocrats elect public officials, set prices by corporations, and there are no serfs, just the “working class.”

Today’s lords and masters also make the dukes of old look like the pikers that defended them. Donald Trump, for example, boasts about $9 billion in wealth. That wouldn’t just buy him 39,000 acres, but at $10,000 an acre, he could acquire 900,000 acres or 1,400 square miles – enough to fit all New York City’s boroughs inside – four times – and still have 200 square miles remaining for golf courses and towers. At that size, Trump’s land could hold 40 million inhabitants at NYC density.

Asked if he is in favor of raising the minimum wage this week:

trumpDONALD TRUMP: I can’t be, Neil (Cavuto). And the reason I can’t be is [that] we are a country that is being beaten on every front economically, militarily. There is nothing that we do now to win. We don’t win anymore. Our taxes are too high. I’ve come up with a tax plan that many, many people like very much. It’s going to be a tremendous plan. I think it will make our country and our economy very dynamic. But, taxes too high, wages too high, we’re not going to be able to compete against the world. I hate to say it, but we have to leave it the way it is. People have to go out, they have to work really hard and have to get into that upper stratosphere. We can not do this if we are going to compete with the rest of the world. We just can’t do it. – most recent Republican debate

Donald Trump has a mixed bag of economic solutions, many bereft of the international Continue reading →

radioislam.org spews hatred, as though chicken lives don’t matter! Ritual said to satisfy Satan, who also hates chickens?

The crazies who hate Jews often rave about the banks, Hollywood, Passover blood and, of course, Israel.

But what about chickens?

I don’t mean Jews and chicken soup used in place of antibiotics. Or that some haters say Jews are “chickens.” Nor do I bring up the White House spokesman who called the Israeli Prime Minister “chicken turd” or some term like that.

The true anti-Semites are obsessed with real chickens and real Jews, as in the following video, courtesy of  the radioislam.org site and the insane asylum where it was produced:

And for those of you who think this is isolated mental disorder, here are some stills (these are supposed to be shocking?) about Jews and chickens, also from the best little hate site in town – radioislam.org: Continue reading →
