Yea and gm has taken part in the global capitalist market for years and trying to make things better for everyone...<quoted text>
Transplants received nothing. They did get property tax relief and breaks on corporate taxes for a limited period. It paid off in thousands of NEW jobs, and much more in taxes collected had there not been those incentives. The amount was a drop in the bucket compared to the giveaway to UAW. For example, here BMW has 5,000 workers plus another 12,000 are employed in the supplier base. They breaks they got have been repaid many times over. The UAW will be back for more in another 2 years.
it's too bad uaw is protectionist and won't let gm become a world leader instead of metro detroit only.
If this dumb union gets its own way...
it will find out that it can't exist without management soon enough.
