Since they have begun all the lay offs in the Auto Industry as well as transferring supply jobs, assembly etc. to other countries imagine the surprise on their face when the cars they are making are not selling.

You lay off workers with an agreement with the UAW, the other employers in the area let people go, etc., etc., etc. and on and on and on.

I am shocked that after the bail out of the banking/insurance industry and the monies were not being used for what was intended that they would even want to bail out another business that has no plans on changing its employment/sales strategies.

Government wants to help reduce the EPA and Safety requirements a tad, force them to stop shipping jobs overseas, make the banks lower the credit standards after getting 700 Billion dollars in relief from those who cannot afford to put money in the bank or buy new cars.
