UAW 1 White House 0

Administration unwilling to see automakers fail

Its official now after 8 years of supporting you between the Wall Street bailout that we will never see again and the now Big 3/UAW bailout you make me fucking sick. You couldn't let it ride until Obama came in office? Its 40 days they would have to wait WTF?


UAW lashes out at senators in Southern states with foreign car plants after auto aid bill dies

Their top targets were Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.; Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who led negotiations on a compromise; and Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., who has been a vocal critic of the loans.

Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama all house auto assembly plants from foreign automakers, and union officials contend the senators want to drive UAW wages down so there would be no reason for workers at the foreign plants to join the union.

"They thought perhaps they could have a twofer here maybe: Pierce the heart of organized labor while representing the foreign brands," UAW President Ron Gettelfinger said at a Friday morning news conference in Detroit.

That is the most pathetic thing I have ever heard. I have friends and family that work at Toyota of Georgetown KY and Toyota of Princeton IN and none of them want any part of your crooked UAW. They make more than their Big 3 counterparts without dumping money into the UAW coffers.

Toyota could crush the Big 3 and I wish they would just go on and do it. They also seem forget that KY has a GM plant in Bowling Green and a Ford plant in Louisville. Just tour the Corvette factory and you will quickly see why GM cannot compete with Toyota.
