Auto Industry Bailout Follow Up

The NY Times is reporting that one of the things that kept the Republicans in the Senate from supporting the bailout was the UAW’s refusal to take any pay cuts until 2011. From the article, it sounds like Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) and UAW President Ron Gettelfinger are both lying, but regardless, if the UAW isn’t willing to make concessions right now, whether pay cuts or benefit cuts or work rule changes, then let the car companies go under and the UAW members find other jobs.
