    I am more than willing to agree that much of the problem currently facing the BIG THREE has to do with politicies and laws enacted by Congress.

    Hell, I've been pointing out this problem of many American industries has at its souce the stupid policies of our own govenment for some time now

    Journalist Alisa Priddle wrote for The Detroit News 20 November 2008, concerning a press conference with UAW President Ron Gettelfinger:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    He said he sees the U.S. as being "in a race to the bottom in our country and the UAW's in that race as well because of our negotiations." He said he wondered if the goal was to reduce everyone to minimum wage. "Is that what our country's objective is?"
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    No! Minimum wage is still way too high. That would give an American auto worker around $1050 per month. The average auto worker in China gets around $150-$200 per month.
