This Thursday is the deadline for Delphi, the bankrupt auto parts maker, to come to agreement with its employees on a much lower hourly wage.
Today's Detroit News outlines a proposal where Delphi with GM's assistance offers lower wages at a graduated pace. First step would be with the average employee going from $27 to $22 per hour and ending at $16 an hour.
If no deal is reached by Thursday, then Delphi will go to the bankruptcy court judge and ask that the contracts with their employees be voided. That would probably precipitate a strike.
If that happens, then Michigan's quandry and troubles will be at the crisis point. Politicians from both sides will have to work together to ensure that our state has a future. The likelihood of both sides working together towards a positive end?
