Default $73 an Hour

The calculations show, accurately enough, that for every hour a
unionized worker puts in, one of the Big Three really does spend about
$73 on compensation.

Right. Nobody thought it was take-home pay of $73/hour. Even high school
kids flipping burgers know you don't take home what the boss pays.

But it is still an obscene amount obtained by coercion. Put these jobs out
to bid and imagine what would happen.
