    Profit-sharing bonuses for United Auto Workers’ members at Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) and General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) are expected to be at least as large as last year’s payout at General Motors and larger than the year-ago bonuses paid at Ford. Approximately 55,000 GM hourly workers and 40,000 Ford employees are in line for the payments.

    GM workers can expect bonuses of between $5,500 and $7,000, and Ford’s employees could receive a payment of more than $8,000 each, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The payments are based on a formula that gives workers a $1 bonus for every $1 million in North American operating profit at the two companies.

    U.S. auto sales are on track to top 14.5 million units in 2012, up 14% over last year’s sales total. In the first three quarters of the year, GM has posted operating profit of $5.55 billion and Ford’s profit totals nearly $6.5 billion. And the fourth quarter looks good too.

    It's a disgrace.
    Here's another one...union job, of course...They think they're SOOOOO "special"

    "Stagehand$ Salary at Carnegie Hall Hits Half a Million"

    You may get to Carnegie Hall through practice, but you get to walk away from Carnegie Hall with a half million a year by being a stagehand at the legendary venue.

    Bloomberg News blows the lid off the shocking salaries that Carnegie doles out annually, saying that while "a star pianist can receive $20,000 a night... he or she would have to perform at least 27 times to match the income of Dennis O’Connell, who oversees props at the hall."

    Indeed, O’Connell made $530,044 in salary and benefits last year, and the four other members of his full time team (including two carpenters and two electricians) each took home about $430,543. The site points out that the stagehands "benefit from a strong union: Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees." Stagehands at the hall do everything from move equipment to prep work on the three stages to operate audiovisual and sound fixtures, and only the Artistic and Executive Director, Clive Gillinson, makes more — earning a whopping $946,581 per year.

    Every time CEO salaries are criticized we're told it's none of our business. We're told how special they are and how hard they work. Sycophants seem to think that praising such excess will lead them to a peerage. I would agree that the earnings of these people are Carnegie Hall are excessive, but at least there is some actual proof of their hours as opposed to the CEO who maintains that he is working at lunch, shopping, and in the barbershop.

    Let's face it: the entire theory of value is bullshit. Madonna is not worth $200 a ticket when there are equal talents out there who would perform for free to get their name in lights. Donald Trump is a walking scam. The Walton family are parasites who profit from poverty worldwide. Pat Robertson and the Pope should both be symbols of shame. Who the hell is buying Buicks and Mazdas?

    I wouldn't know. I'll have to defer to you on that.

    Skills, knowledge, aptitude and experience SHOULD be the only criteria used in hiring and wages...not which union you're a member of.

    All the time you have been on this board and you still cannot grasp the difference between capitalism and government owned entities.

    Profit sharing is an equitable monetary enticement for achieving pegged production/Sales marks. Capitalism rocks.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
