the 2 teir wage system would be realistic and logical
the 2 teirs are separated by a real difference in employee such as education level, training, experience, and actual performance, attendance... of the individual employee (either you are a class a employee: that knows your job inside and out, and has a related degree to prove it, makes a real difference in the workplace, ...must meet some kind of job related requirement... to earn their top teir status...
or a b type that barely shows up, doesnt know left from right, cant spell his own name, much less improve anything...)
the 2 tier system they put in place for us sucks.......... basically everyone who starts work here after today starts at 2 dollars less then the rest of us, and will not ever progress to the same level, regardless of skill level or ANY other factor.
the results of this are showing now its been less then a year, and they are firing everybody they can, with no chance of keeping a job through the union, cuz they will NOT help anyone, unless you are buddies with the bargaining committee. so now at least a quarter of us (that made between 13.50-16.00) have been removed and replaced with people that make 10.00.
sure for the company thats great..., but what about the people who will start making 2.00 less, and continue to make 2.00 less for the entire time they work there. but be expected to do the exact same job every day.
its a crock!
and the concessions that they expect everyone to take. (loose your vacations, 401k match, holidays) because the company has MISMANAGED its self into a hole, and not willing to SOLVE the problems at hand, and would rather just steal the money it needs to make back from the employees wages and retirement funds. that will bring up the moral of the people and the quality of the parts they make....
1986 Camaro Berlinetta (originally)-now a nitrous breathing 383 stroker
1992 Camaro RS - pretty much stock (only to keep its 25th anniversary edition book value)
all the other Camaros were sold
