UAW is a huuuuge "burden" upon the auto industry. Not saying that there should not be a Union, but do to normal inflation it is becoming more expensive to maintain an American work force AND be competitive. For the poster that mentioned Germany...the difference there is the base pay of the workers. It is considerably less than the American worker given the cost of living in Germany... Even the UAW realizes the burden and made "some" concessions (as testified before Senator Dodd and others) to "help" the Big 3. The problem is not ONLY the UAW, but the UAW is a very large chunk of it.
