Well if Toyota and the other “foreign” car makers are making cars in the US, and GM is making cars abroad, then which of them is doing more to help our economy and give people jobs?
I imagine the main reason GM wants to make cars in Brazil is that they can’t afford UAW scale wages. At one time, labor unions may have had a purpose, but for as long as I can remember they have been mainly destructive, even to their own members.
There should be no bailout as long as the UAW survives in its present form. And it’s long past time to revise the labor laws—and NOT by doing away with secret ballots in union elections.
But smart governments have been in short supply lately.
