Truth about Two-Tier

Jul 23, 2007

The auto companies want workers to agree to a different two-tier pay scale. They want it set up so new hires get a lower pay that will stop at a low level and NEVER CATCH UP.

In 2003, top UAW leaders told Delphi workers that this kind of low two-tier deal would eventually help new workers catch up.

Now we see that was a lie. The new Delphi contract brings the higher paid workers DOWN to the same low level as the new hires.

When the bosses divide us up, into higher and lower pay levels, they have only one reason – to bring EVERYONE to the BOTTOM LEVEL sooner or later.

Don’t let them even try it.
