I love it any time one of the talking heads at Fox News gets schooled by someone who actually did his/her homework, and who also knows how to beat them at their "talkover" game. Watch as Virg Bernero, the mayor of Lansing, Michigan sets the record straight about the "concessions" that the UAW was being asked to make.
Oh, and to set the record straight on another "fact" that Fox and the rest of the corporate media have passed around: the $70/hour that a UAW worker makes. That is an overinflated figure that is derived by taking the total payout that The Big Three pay to all workers--current and retired--and dividing it by the number of CURRENT workers at The Big Three. Hopefully, this does some good to restore the perspective on this issue that has largely been lost.
