Chrsyler On Strike

The United Auto Workers launched a widespread strike against Chrysler LLC this morning after all-night negotiations failed to produce a tentative agreement on a new labor contract.

Thousands of UAW members took to the picket lines at Chrysler plants across the U.S. in the second walkout against one of Detroit's Big Three during this year's contract talks.

From what I read this morning they are pretty close to a deal so I am assuming it will be a short strike like GMs

Thank GOODNESS it only lasted about 6 1/2 hours...

But still....driving by the one plant on my way home from the airport it was freaky. No cars, empty, closed. It made my stomach hurt.....
