It's common wisdom now, that the reason the US Auto Industry is in trouble, is because Americans earn too much money. This is evidently bankrupting America.
So I propose the following as a plan for all you that blame the UAW for destroying America.
1. Fix all wages at a $1.00 / hour. This will make America competitive with the poorest of nations. Rich people can continue to derive their earnings from Capital Gains.
2. Outlaw unions. With fixed wages, people don't need a voice in the workplace.
2. Pay corporations to exist. Because Americans won't be able to buy products, corporations will need a different revenue stream. The government will print money and give it to corporations according to their 2005 gross earnings. This quantity will increase 3% a year.
3. Encourage corporations to cut costs by not buying materials, producing products and hiring employees. Without production and without employees, all will see record profits.
4. Eliminate corporate taxes. With government printing presses making free money, the government doesn't need tax revenue.
This will end the problem of Americans making too much money, and will make US corporations the wealthiest in the world, attracting investment and insuring continued growth in the stock market.
Further, Rush Limbaugh will love this plan, insuring that millions of Americans will get behind it, and demand it from our government. Anyone who doesn't like it will be branded a 'Fucking Liberal', for not believing in Trickle Down Economics.
Remember, if you have a job, you're making America uncompetitive with your greed. If you love America and love capitalism, quit your job and go live on the streets. Your high wages are breaking corporate America. Don't be a Liberal Commie Bastard. If you just have to work, do it for the love of it, and don't ask for compensation. Don't ruin America by insisting that you deserve a share of the Dream.
