If you do your research the D3 are the ones that originally wanted the "job bank" started.. so they could keep the employees that have already been trained.

I'm neither for or against it, just making a statement.

But that's why they have to pay so much money in benefits now, they chose to agree a long time ago. Now they are trying to get rid of it. This is in reference to the Toyota situation, Toyota didn't have to pay, but it did to keep the employees productive. There's always a big difference between having to do something and doing something because you choose to. Many companies just shove people out the door and that's it.
