Seventy Dollars An Hour

So auto workers are now making $70/hour? If you do the math, that comes out to over $145,000 a year. Yahoo! Blue collar workers are wealthy! Who'da guessed? What am I doing in an office job? What the heck am I painting and writing for? The real money is on the assembly line. Where do I sign up?

This is so obviously stupid. And yet, the zombie lies just keep piling on and on. It's a vicious monster that never stops, feeding on the brains of the weak and the stupid. And the ones most willing to believe these lies are the ones most directly affected by them. The message from our Republican friends is that American workers are paid too much. They should be poor.

But the CEOs can keep their massive bonuses. They're just struggling to get by. Unlike those workers at the GM plant.
