Showing us who are the real b***ards
25 October 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This balanced documentary none the less shows who really behaves despicably when it comes to labor relations. Bob White does his best to get a deal for his auto workers but the multi-million salaried Roger Smith can't spare an extra 40c an hour. The stress of contract negotions is evident and one does get the feeling that at times the workers are their own worst enemy. Even though it was made in 1985 this doco is more than relevant in today's environment where workers are expected to accept less and less while execs get million dollar bonuses and massive share options.
