Delphi Backing Down From Previous Comments

I mentioned in a previous post about Delphi wanting to cut workers wages to $10/hour, from the $20-25 per hour they are currently making and the huge uproar it caused.

I stated that even Toyota paid it's line workers close to $20/hour. Well seems Delphi's head man is backing down from what he said because it has come out that even Japanese competitors and suppliers pay their employees more than $10/hour.

Delphi's draconian terms aren't likely to survive wrangling because comparable suppliers in the United States -- Lear, Johnson Controls, Dana -- pay unionized workers anywhere from $14 to $18 an hour, not $9 to $10 an hour. The UAW should know because it represents most of them.
