    At the mine in Boron, Rio Tinto is attempting to introduce what it describes as “modern workplace practices that will allow it to base work assignments and promotions on experience, skills, and performance rather than solely on years of service.”

    Pay based on experience, skills and performance - as a union drone that is a concept that goes over your head, I have no doubt.

    about the new Ford plant in Brazil.

    In the first industrial revolution the skilled workers thought that the new machines would reduce the number of decent jobs but the opposite happened because skilled workers were required to operate and service the machines. In this industrial revolution the machines are operated by computers and the workers only service the machines.
