UNION SOLIDARITY: Walkout is a family affair

The Seaton family of Inkster is on strike. Not just Mitch Seaton, who has worked for General Motors Corp. since 1979. And not just his wife, Carmen Seaton, who has worked at GM as a journeyman toolmaker for 10 years.

I don't think that they are going to 'give up middle class' if they take some concessions.

Heck, they are currently pulling in 2 union scale paychecks. That's like winning the lottery.......every Friday. I used to live in Inkster, they are doing EXTREMELY well.

'Carmen Seaton, just back from a Jena Six protest in Louisiana, explained that the lessons of solidarity and speaking out are important in their household.'

That was about all I had to read...

------------------
'"I want them to do better than this," Mitch Seaton said of his children'

Then stop showing them this is the way to live your life. Instill a good education in them so they don't have to belittle themselves to blocking traffic of hard working Americans while they sip their coffee and hold picket signs. Give me a break.

------------------

'"I don't want to give up anything," Carmen Seaton said.'

That is the mentality that is killing the Union. Times change, everything changes. Do these morons think things can go on forever just the same? Apparently so.

It's all about compromising, and unions don't like giving anything, all they do is take.
