Lansing Mayor freaks out
What the hell dude? Is it an election year or what?
Maybe Michigan is the only state where UAW workers don't quite get why the auto industry is on it's ASS.
Yes. The big three sent thousands of jobs to Mexico, Canada, China, everywhere.
Because you can't sustain a 2000$ loss per car. I wish I had benefits for life after I work for 22 years. Wouldn't we all? I predicted this for the last 2 or 3 years. I reported on this a dozen times, predicting that the UAW would sink the big three. Was it only the UAW? no but it was a major contributing factor. That and a really stupid marketing and manufacturing plan based on selling 45,000$(US) pick-up trucks and 60,000$(US) SUV's which were actually pick-up truck frames with more seats that got an awesome 6-14 miles per gallon, depending on the model you bought.
