Errrm, no. I worked in a dealership for a while and several things have to come out of that $75. Like rent, new hoists, payroll for the admin, service writers, warranty clerks, cleaners, water and cable for the customers, toilet paper, and the list goes on and on. Technicians are among the highest paid employees in any dealership and everyone there that supports them deserves a paycheque too.
Anyhoo, just be glad you aren't in Canada. GM underfunded the pension plan with the support of the union and now that their pension plan isn't there, they would like the Canadian taxpayer to kick in what's missing.

yeah...right...just type in "exploited workers in the US" in google, and you'll see how it has gone away
look, most jobs are turning into part-time, minimum-wage, no benefits jobs, why do you think people are having such a hard time buying anything? wal-mart is the king of retail for it's cheap crap. the less you pay your workers, the less they can buy. why is this so hard to understand? the middle class is all but eliminated in this country. but in your world, it's all the unions fault. those poor wealthy people have no power at all, right? they have no influence over labor in this country, right? they have no influence over government to write favorable laws on behalf of business and the wealthy, right? it's that terrible 7% of the workforce that is union, that is bringing our country down, right?
