"Canadian jobs are not a bargaining chip."
Brampton Mayor Susan Fennell expresses her discontent with Chrysler president Tom LaSorda, after he announced that if the autoworker union did not agree to a 25% cut in labour costs, Chrysler would walk.
I read this article off of the connexions website newsfeed (on their homepage) and found it to be concise and interesting.
What is the bottom line for LaSorda? He is certainly not daunted by the loss of 3,400 Canadian jobs that would have disastrous economic consequences for Canada. For LaSorda, it seems the bottom line is the almighty dollar.
The article gives testimony from several workers at the Brampton plant, where it appears the general sentiment is disgust. Apparently, the millions LaSorda garners himself in bonuses per year are just not enough for him.
Check out the article for more details.
