Reuters reports that GM is losing $49,000 for every Volt it builds, renewing criticism that the eco-friendly hybrid will never be profitable

I wasn't talking about the Volt dumbazz but any and all businesses__employees are not hired to improve profits nut to improve production, distribution sales etc.

How those improvements fulfill profits one way or the other is the concern of management.

Once again, your knowledge of business is pathetic.

<quoted text>"In 1998, Hugh Caperton filed a lawsuit against A.T. Massey Coal Company alleging that Massey fraudulently canceled a coal supply contract with Harman Mining, resulting in its going out of business. In 2007, when the case came before the West Virginia Supreme Court, Caperton petitioned for Justice Benjamin to recuse himself. Benjamin declined and was ultimately part of the 3 to 2 majority that overturned the jury's $50 million verdict. In November 2008, the United States Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal.[32] Wal-Mart, PepsiCo, Intel Corporation, Lockheed Martin, Common Cause and Public Citizen filed briefs in the case urging the United States Supreme Court to reject the West Virginia Supreme Court's decision. The briefs contended that Justice Brent Benjamin was biased in the case.[33] On June 8, 2009, The US Supreme Court agreed 5-4, sending the case back to the West Virginia Supreme Court,[34] and forcing Justice Benjamin to recuse himself from the case. The New York Times opined that the case involved "egregious ethical myopia" on the part of Justice Benjamin.[35]
In February 2003 a judge ordered Massey to pay the residents of Sylvester, West Virginia $473,000 to settle complaints that coal dust from Massey's Elk Run Processing Plant had caused health problems and lowered property values in the nearby town.[36] In addition the payment to the residents of Sylvester, West Virginia, Massey Energy was ordered to construct a cloth dome over their coal processing plant to reduce the dust.[37]
On September 16, 2004, a civil jury ordered Massey to pay $1.54 million in damages to 245 residents of Mingo County, W. Va., who lost their water wells after Massey had mined beneath the homes. The jury concluded that Massey acted “with malicious, willful, wanton, reckless or intentional disregard for plaintiffs’ rights.”[38]
In 2005, Wheeling, W.Va.-based steelmaker Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel sued Virginia-based Massey Energy claiming Massey failed to deliver on a contract of 104,000 tons of coal monthly. In July 2007, a Circuit Court in Brooke County, W.Va. upheld the jury award of more than $267 million, including accrued interest.
In 2005, some residents of Raleigh County, West Virginia, complained that Massey's Goals Coal Company was endangering the health and well-being of students at the adjacent Marsh Fork Elementary School.[In July 2005, the West Virginia Division of Environmental Protection revoked a permit for construction of a coal silo near the school. However, some local employees and residents supported Massey Energy by arguing that the economic benefits received from the company outweigh the environmental impact to the area.[citation needed] 30 non-violent protestors were arrested, including actress Daryl Hannah, NASA climatologist James E. Hansen, and former West Virginia Congressman Ken Hechler[citation needed]. In June 2009, the West Virginia Supreme Court concluded that the Massey was allowed to build their second silo; "We therefore find that the circuit court did not err, and properly affirmed the decision of the West Virginia Surface Mine Board."[40]
In December 2008 residents of Prenter, West Virginia filed a lawsuit claiming that underground slurry injection from a Massey coal facility, and other coal preparation plants, contaminated their underground water supply. On June 12, 2012 a confidential settlement was reached between Massey Energy and the residents of Prenter, West Virginia.[41][42]
On Oct 30, 2009, Fayette County West Virginia Judge Paul Blake ruled in an age discrimination lawsuit that more than 200 miners who were not rehired after Massey Energy Co. bought a bankrupt West Virginia mine were entitled to a settlement of $8.75 million. The suit covers 229 miners, including 82 union miners. Massey has been ordered to rehire the miners.

Hillary Clinton Panda Sex Tape: The Freaky Way FreedomWorks Thinks About Politics
FreedomWorks is flush with money, but there appears to be little direction on how to utilize that money effectively. For many, the creation of the panda video is further proof of the organization's poor management.
Kibbe’s personal profit and use of the organizations resources for self-promotion has caused some conservatives to distance themselves from FreedomWorks. More than Kibbe’s use of the organization for personal gain, it is more likely that the waining political power of the organization will be its undoing.
“They’re chasing the movement rather than leading it,” according to Chris Littleton of the Ohio Liberty Coalition.
Despite receiving several large donations from the president of Cancer Treatment Centers for the 2012 election, and pouring money into races like that of tea-party favorite Joe Walsh in Illinois, there were few victories to celebrate this year.
The mounting failures of FreedomWorks and its severe lack of judgement in the creation of the panda-Clinton video, call into question the overall efficacy of conservative grassroots organizations.

Improving production, distribution, and sales may mean having fewer employees, not more.

Many companies function efficiently with only core staff, farming out as much as possible.

Nah, he's not an elitist

"President Obama played golf Sunday with Tiger Woods during the president’s long holiday weekend in Florida, the White House said.

The foursome at the Floridian National Golf Club, in Palm City, Fla., included U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk and Jim Crane, a Democratic donor who owns the club and the Houston Astros baseball team."

I spent yesterday at the track and today watched TV as Danica captured the pole. Last night's race was a bullshyte deal not to mention cold as a mofo. The coming week will be much warmer with temps in the 70's and the twins as well as the 500 should be classics with the new cars and visual technologies.

NASCAR/ISC is building profits through the efforts of others__no interviews necessary. The employees that fret about parking, security, facilities maintenance etc etc take away from the bottom line thus reducing profits rather than contributing to.

You, Galt and Eman are losers without a clue about how industry operates___dumber than Carol and that takes some effort.

You & your buttbuddy Galt know nothing about running a business so I wold STFU about sh*t you know NOTHING about.

My God.

I would never ever start a business or run one where my goal was to pay people as little as possible.

The key to being successful is to locate good employees & keep them by paying a good wage with good benefits.

It is these good employees that learn their jobs & improve their production & offer opinions on improving market share, production & efficiencies that increase profits. Not paying them less.
