Lansing! Elect this man Mayor for Life!



Update: As Glenn Greenwald points out, the whole "$70/hour" thing is completely misrepresented. GM and other auto employees are not PAID seventy bucks an hour, that's the total cost per worker. The "journalist" then compares that total cost to the average base salary of a midwest employee, which is around $27/hour. And attempts to spin it as a $70 vs. $27 argument, which the auto workers must "give up" as a "concession" in this situation.

This is not an accurate comparison. Argue if you feel like autoworkers are overpaid, fine. But don't you dare use total cost vs. base salary to do it.
