Blames Workers

December 07, 1986

In the Nov. 16 story on the closing of the General Motors plant in Norwood, Ohio, I could hardly believe what I was reading.

The GM workers boycott a restaurant owner who owns a Volvo and ask owners of foreign cars to park their vehicles in another lot.

Meanwhile, their shoddy workmanship produces cars less reliable than those made at other GM plants, and the workers have an absentee rate of 14%.

They'd have helped their cause more if they produced better cars.

It's workers like these that give unions a bad name. They've learned firsthand that, protected or unprotected, workers who produce shoddy products are doomed.
