Moral of the story: Long-time General Motors workers (union hourly and non-union salary both) have had it too good for far too long. They've nursed off the GM tit for just too many years until it's gone bone dry...and now it's time to pay the piper.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
