The quickest way GM can solve this is to go to the local Community colleges and say "Hey we got a job for you guys. Work all the hours you want. You won't get Union level pay, but we do have a comprehensive benefits package and we'll get you a discount on that new GM car you've been wanting." The Unions will either strike themselves to death or go back to work ASAP for fear of losing there jobs.
The reason I say they go to the community colleges is, according to the caption in TFA about the machinist on strike, that I know about 30 people that are taking CAD/CAM II and are fully capable of doing the stuff those Union laborers are walking away from. I guarantee a broke college kid would **** themselves for the opportunity to work at GM, go to college, get a new car, and still have money left over to pay the bills all from a "work your own hours" part time/full time job.
I'm an architectural design major and I know I'd work for GM if that was the case. What do you all think?
