He says he lost more than $6,000 in the last month and expects to lose even more in November. He's resulted to slashing prices drastically just to flesh some money into bills.


“The business cost x amount of dollars to run a month regardless of if works coming in or not and this last month I was more than a thousand dollars negative. It’s looking like this month coming up when the bills are due, so far I’m about 90% negative,” said Davidson.


Davidson says even if the strike were to end, he wouldn't see any immediate changes. But he hopes people can catch up on bills and come back for repairs so that he can put presents under the tree for his kids this Christmas.


Strike pay increases to $275 dollars a week starting Sunday, Oct. 13. The UAW is now waiting on word from GM after submitting a counter-offer on Friday, Oct. 11. Experts say the move signals a tentative agreement could happen any day.
