The original post regarding Delphi needs some clarification. In it it stated
that Delphi employees made $65 per hour. That is what they make including
the cost of their health insurance, retirement, and other benefits. Actual
wage is really around $27 per hour, still a great wage in my book, this is
what long time employees make, in the last 4 years or so new hires only make
$14 per hour, this was granted as a concession to stem the tide of red ink..
The problem though is in the last couple of days Delphi has stated they want
to cut the current wage ($27) by 2/3 to $10 per hour! This would make their
wages little better than most non-skilled jobs like Wal-Mart, fast food,
Also, I live in Niagara County NY, and Delphi is the largest employer and
taxpayer. This will be disasterous to our local economy as you know the
local governments will continue to spend and raise taxes to cover it. Also
put your self in the position of having your wage cut by 2/3.............now
what! Sell your house, cancel your childrens college education? This will
be ruinous for thousands of people...............many of them friends who
have worked their lives away at Delphi.
I tried years ago to get in there, but never succeeded.
Tried again 4 years ago while I was unemployed, found out that a lot of
employees and even supervisors were "temps" working at $10 per hour no
