Yeah, it's the end of the line all right, but this was coming decades ago, so this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

The inflexible unions and the incompetent executives destroyed GM.

Basic business math tells it all. How can a company that pays $25.00 in wages compete against a company that pays $18.00? Answer is they can’t, the gap between them is too wide.

I used to work for GM, so I know the rigors of working on the line, but I saw the writing on the wall, went to school and left GM.

Good luck to those who tried to ride it out until the bitter end, the competitions going to be rough for even minimum wage jobs.
