"Another month or two of posturing and idleness without paychecks may have to happen before serious progress.Actually, I think JoeBell only predicted two more weeks of inactivity, but I think both of you are on the money (no pun intended). I don't know about the automotive industry, but the computer industry has gotten rather quickly to the point where we must all operate 'cost-effectively,' with regular attempts to limit wasteful 'costs' and enhance the 'revenue' we generate for the company. Getting paid a full days pay for six hours of work would not go over big at my job. And we have already farmed out some of the excess work we have on our schedules to consultants in Argentina because they can do it just as well and cheaper than consultants in New York.A business does what it has to do to improve its bottom line. With the two week re-tooling period looming, I am beginning to think GM management has the upper hand ... which is, of course, a switch from my previous position, but that's what happens when people who actually know what's going on in the industry (such as JoeBell and MomAtHome) put their two cents in.==> david
