No the morons think they can just stick it to the worker bees and when the whole shit goes belly up, then they run crying to the federal government for a bailout.You idiots seem to think caterpillar should have just done the same as detroit, just sit on their butts overpaying their workers, until they reach the point where they are no longer competitive and they're in a big mess and need a bailout.
It's a competitive market, the company is doing what it should to keep their expenses in check, just like the workers and their union try to increase their wages. Just because the company is making a profit doesn't mean it shouldn't do everything it can to maintain the competitive edge they have.
Caterpillar should just move their HQ out of illinois to a state with better leadership and do even better.
