Auto Bail-out? Read this
January 4, 2009
Today I received an email containing a response by an automotive industry supplier in Franklin, Ohio, who blasted GM President Troy Clarke and the Big 3 for going after a bail-out.
He tells it like it is. Examples:
"Politicians and Management of the Big 3 are both infected with the same entitlement mentality that has spread like cancerous germs in UAW halls for the last countless decades..."
"This dream where we can ignore the consumer for years while management myopically focuses on its personal rewards packages at the same time that our factories have been filled with the worlds most overpaid, arrogant, ignorant and laziest entitlement minded 'laborers' without paying the price for these atrocities..."
"How about the electricians who walk around the plants like lords in feudal times, making people wait on them for countless hours while they drag ass so they can come in on the weekend and make double and triple time for a job they easily could have done within their normal 40 hour work week"
"That job driving that forklift for the Big 3 really isn't worth $85,000 a year."
"That couple whose combined income is less than $50,000 really shouldn't be living in that $485,000 home. Let the market correct itself folks - it will."
