What GM/UAW workers lose: Free divorces and legal help
According to The Detroit Free Press, the Legal Services Plan came into being in the late '70s with the purpose of providing low and middle-income workers access to top-rate legal service. At the time, General Motors and other domestic manufacturers could afford to provide the aid, but with 65 offices in 20 states fielding over 160,000 cases per year, it's easy to see the cost benefit of shedding the service. GM may not be the only automaker looking to bow out, either. There's some indication that Ford will do the same in its negotiations with the union.
