Citigroup gets 300 billion Detroit wants 25 Billion but guess whose workers have to give up pay and benefits because they *cough* are uncompetitive
Some jerk GOP talking head was saying the unions who are only asking for 25 billion I think should lower their wages and benefits.
Japanese workers in Japan get National Healthcare but our peope should drop their benefits?
In the Japanese health care system, healthcare services, including free screening examinations for particular diseases, prenatal care, and infectious disease control, are provided by national and local governments. Payment for personal medical services is offered through a universal health care insurance system that provides relative equality of access, with fees set by a government committee. People without insurance through employers can participate in a national health insurance program administered by local governments. Since 1973, all elderly persons have been covered by government-sponsored insurance. Patients are free to select physicians or facilities of their choice.
It is compulsory to be enrolled in a Japanese insurance program if you are a resident of Japan. The two main categories of health insurance are referred to as Kenk?-Hoken ???? ([social] health insurance) and Kokumin-Kenk?-Hoken ?????? (national health insurance). National health insurance is generally reserved for self-employed people and students, where as social insurance is normally for corporate employees .
American Workers should just accept less than the Japanese?
Nobody in the GOP is saying that Citigroup employees with a 300 billion bailout should take a pay cut or lose benefits.
