    Health care? Pay? 'I just want my job,' worker says - by Louis Aguilar, The Detroit News
    As the United Auto Workers and Detroit automakers play hardball over who should be in charge of $90 billion in retiree health care, Chrysler LLC worker Jonathon Tuttle wants only one thing from the next contract:

    "I just want my job," says Tuttle, 51, who assembles Dodge Ram and Dakota pickups in Warren. His sentiments were echoed in interviews with more than two dozen autoworkers awaiting the outcome of negotiations

    "This is the last great job to have for someone like me," Tuttle said. "I think we all understand that. The global economy would eat me up."

    Health care may dominate the contract talks, but foremost on the minds of the rank-and-file is job security.
