American Axle is another critical area, and is just coming off a
long and bitter strike, mainly over wage rates. The employees
were less than pleased about a 10$-15$ / hour wage cut to "keep
the company competative" after it was discovered American Axle's
corporate CEO Richard Dauch made at least $60 million over the
last five years.

It is interesting that the VP for Procurement at Chrysler just
resigned for "reasons of health."

He's very sensitive to acute lead poisoning and needs to avoid it. d8-)

To be fair, the boss is only costing the employees $1.60/hour each.

I'm sure he's value for money, don't know whether it's good or bad value

The question is whether he's worth as much as 200 employees. I've spent a
lot of time at American Axle over the years, and I've never seen any
evidence of it.
