It comes from Neo Crybaby news sources, CBS News, and even “liberal” rags like the New York Times. In their anti-union, anti-worker attempt to blame it all on the workers, they argue GM workers gets over $70 an hour. While not necessarily a fan of MSNBC’s Obamaman, he hits this nail on the head.
No, you can’t put all the health care and retirement costs since the 1930’s on the backs of a much smaller 2008 workforce.
As is pointed out by unlawflcombatnt, at best this gets the Big 3 to $27 an hour including benefits and retirement, which is $43 away from the $70 lie.
This is about the fuzziest math I have ever seen since Ma and Pa Kettle.
