Aside from your post containing no actual information, and only some talking points from the CAW, it fails to answer several important questions.
Even when Caterpillar profits rose 44% by October
In Conservatopia, when a company is hugely profitable... what do we do with workers? Cut their wage!
With a government that sides with corporations in all scenarios. Corporations have been given the green light by the Harper Government to treat workers (The majority of Canadians) like crap. And they are running with it.
Let's get ourselves out of this bad economy by paying everyone less, so we can't generate as much economic activity!
Is that particular plant profitable or does it lose money?
Are their wages in line with the wages of other Caterpillar employees in other plants doing similar jobs?
Are the rise in sales from October indicative of future growth, or just a rebound from the huge plunge in sales from the previous couple of years?
Anyways, I'm suprised many of you people care this much about Caterpiller. Do you realize what kind of carbon footprint they leave? Do you realize the type of machinery they build? Do you realize who uses their equipment? *whisper* Oil sands.
