Now, tell me how much debt the Nanny States run by Democrats are in.
Doing so well, Perrywinkle has to run from state to state begging folks to relocate.

Which Dem governors need to do that?

The fattest, dumbest people are in the south and most of them are white and retarded, like you.

PS: Obama has a city or rather a district. It's called Washington DC and he rules it as well as the rest of the U.S. Suck on that, zippy.

Has everything to do with the collapse of American auto manufacturers closing down plants and leaving Detroit.
DC and the unions destroyed Detroit.
DC protected the auto industry and the oil industry by refusing to raise fuel standards. Guess how that worked out? Ask Toyota and Honda.

The Unions bullied everyone until their workers were paid far more than they were worth and even began paying them $40 per hour to stay home. Their greed and lack of foresight is what destroyed them.

Right.

It wasn't GMC's fault for building gas burners for twenty years after Americans start begging for fuel efficient automobiles. Or the @00,000+ plus cars have called due to manufacturer defects.

Or the CEO's making hundreds of millions of dollars every year even when losing money.

Sure... it's the union's fault.

Toyota and Honda were selling millions
more FUEL EFFICIENT cars that were leaps and
bounds more reliable because Union workers in
the US had no worries about building "quality cars".
The unions guaranteed they would NOT BE FIRED whereas workers
in Japan took pride in their auto manufacturing
mostly due to fear of punishment or loss of
jobs and they just put out a better product
and the world noticed.

Greed came in many forms in Detroit and the CEO's
also shared the blame. Now they are all paying
the price but it does look like American cars
are still selling. Unfortunately it's mostly
gas guzzling pick-up trucks.

Americans never learn but we'll hear all the
bitchen when gas prices sky rocket again.

Union workers did not make the decisions on what cars to make.

You have them mixed up with the Soviet politburo.

CEOs and Big Three management decide what cars to make and what foreign car manufacturers to buy and what designs to produce and what kind of motors to put in and to make the K-car and a long list of other boners.

Union members do not make management decisions.

Union members demanded higher and higher pay. They never invested in their education yet demanded to be paid far more than they were worth. As automation knocked more and more of them out, they were paid to stay home. Japan offered better cars and cheaper workers so more jobs were lost.

I kind of feel like you have missed the point. Way back, many posts ago, someone was blaming the fall of Detroit on black people. I was pointing out other factors and you honed in on the Unions. Not gonna go round and round because I didn't mean to infer it was all the unions fault.

Auto manufacturers became greedy and complacent.
So did the unions.
Automation began to replace workers.
Jobs started going over seas.
Japan started making more affordable, fuel efficient cars.
Japan had cheaper labor costs.
America made gas guzzlers and STILL DOES.
Pension funds are also contributing to the demise of Detroit.
The economic collapse of December 2007 was also a factor and accelerated their financial woes.

Do you think you need a degree to put right front fenders on Fords?

I see you skipped over the management decisions that you put on the union workers.

Why is that?

Tell me: when did management demand lower salaries?

PS: Worker cost for automobile manufacturers was higher in Japan than it was here. And as I pointed out: the costs for non union shops (Toyota & HOnda) is the same as for US manufacturers.

Are you apologizing for what you INFERRED, and you are wrong, so what you said was [email protected], you did you misuse infer and mean you IMPLIED that all the car manufacturer's ills were the fault of the union, which is also [email protected], since as I have pointed out three times: union workers did not make the MANAGEMENT decisions.

MANAGEMENT made the MANAGEMENT decisions- big cars, rotten fuel efficiencies, fighting fleet gas requirements.

I think that when an uneducated person is paid $39 per hour to put a fender on, whilst someone in a hospital with a college degree is making $20, yeah, that's not gonna last and guess what, it didn't. Oh, but those people in the hospital, yeah, they still have a job and probably always will.

Next!

Our economy didn't collapse and put the auto manufacturers on the brink or bankruptcy between the 1960's and 1980's.

I was speaking of the slowing of U.S. car sales and subsequently the 2008 collapse but I do enjoy your movement of the goal posts to 50 years prior.

NEXT!
