Will the UAW soften its heart?

Our son works on the line. There was a meeting this afternoon. If the UAW won't make concessions that will benefit the company as a whole and help it remain solvent, then layoffs for hundreds of workers will begin on March 1st. There's no other way for the company to stay in business. People aren't buying cars. I pray the union will not be so selfish as to cut off its nose to spite its face. The company has borrowed 90 million and is at the end of its borrowing limit. No it comes to this. But if everyone will agree to fewer hours and less money, then everyone will keep their job.

Rent, mortgage, car payment, wife working part-time, and five month old baby.

He is one of many.

So if you read this and feel called to pray, thank you.
