United Auto Workers’ Strike Against GM Enters 3rd Week
The United Auto Workers’ union strike against General Motors has entered its third week.
To qualify for the strike pay, workers must walk the picket line or do other things related to the strike.
The benefits are much less than the pay that union members are losing because of the strike.
GM says that hourly workers earn an average of $90,000 a year, although that includes profit sharing and overtime.
The strike benefits are also subject to income tax.
Talks between the two parties have centered around wages, profit-sharing and the use of temporary workers.
