    We (IAM&AW) have managed to negotiate 17% wage appreciation over multiple sectors through negotiation since 2007. That is the mean not the aggregate. While I'm not privy to what the other unions have managed to negotiate it's my understanding that the aforementioned number is representative of the major organizations excluding the SEIU.

    Why the obsession with how much money other people are making? Is it fair that I make more money than all of the homeless people in my town combined? How does anyone else's pay check affect you? Should my employees have any more claim on my profit margins than the wage they agree to work for? Should any employer be required to pay unskilled labor as much as they do skilled labor in the name of fairness? You really should examine the entire spectrum of causes and effects before spouting allot of BS about income inequality!

    The most certain method of sparking inflation is print money like crazy. The second most reliable method is raising the base cost of labor without any increase in productivity. The first method debases the currency directly as every new monetary unit printed devalues those already in circulation. Unless the new monetary units are backed by higher production. The second method creates wage inflation not to be confused with wage appreciation. This leads directly to commodity inflation which means that in a relatively short period of time the buying power of unskilled labor returns to the same level as it was prior to wage inflation. A tribute to the hideous nature of unskilled labor. As we at the IAM like to say "Skilled labor isn't cheap and cheap labor isn't skilled." It's not rocket science and I can say that because I'm a rocket scientist.

    King Obama should show Russia and the rest of the global miscreants the true power of the US dollar. Stop the US economic system from accepting the Ruble and stop doing business with foreign banks that do accept the Ruble. Announce the immediate lifting of all drilling moratorium in the GOM and the east coast. Approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline for immediate construction. Allow the immediate approval of the Clovis refinery. Tell Putin that he must withdraw all Russian forces from Ukraine including Crimea or face continuing economic sanctions. I think he would be glad to withdraw in four to six weeks when the Russian people were rioting in the streets of Moscow.

    Hi gang! Just catching up. I'm not sure if I'm glad to see virtually everything the same as it was six weeks ago or not. There was that whole correction of last week but it may just be another head fake. The EZ continues to be puzzling as you would think that Russian military moves would have resulted in more profound market jitters especially in the EZ. Thanks again FPA for maintaining the concentrators even with less than stellar support from the management. At least I'm not the only one that had management issues! LOL.

    Life as we know it would not exist on this planet without CO2. CO2 is therefore not a pollutant. By your logic the increase of CO2 should have caused a major surge in plant growth around the world. Where is it? By the way Rich you do realize that the current interglacial began well before the industrial revolution. Unless you can explain why this interglacial is different than all of the previous ones you're unable to tie it to human activity. You see this isn't the first interglacial and will likely not be the last. There were no humans to cause the others and it's likely they didn't cause this one. Try to look at things without letting your new religion cloud your judgment. If I recall correctly climategate debunked the entire human caused global warming doctrine. http://bit.ly/1kyezVX

    It's undoubtedly a bunch of conservatives using blocking tactics to thwart all the great ideas the huge progressive intellects are coming up with. Those conservatives are all racists you know!

    When the market surges it's because of FOREX inflation. When it pulls back it's because of FOREX inflation. If it trends sideways in a range it's because of FOREX inflation. Who will step up to prove/disprove this bold new theory?

    Do you have any facts to back that up? I suggest you look at whom has been governing cities like Detroit for the past several decades and evaluate information without the inherent bias you consistently show. While figures don't lie liars do figure. The progressives running these cities have figured out that lying is the best bet for them to retain power by buying votes with public funds. Sort of like if you like your doctor etc.... Privatizing social security would be the best way to keep politicians from continuing to steal our money!

    Is the statement true or not? Make all the excuses you want they are doing the same thing today. Now it's a bogus war on women or Holder playing the race card because he doesn't want to release documents. Republicrats all!
