it'll be fun watching sillybozo's head explode as he seeks to blame this on bush.
where are those cars being sold?
are they being sold overseas? or are they being shipped back here? were they cars that would normally have had to be shipped out of the country at great expense?
lots of questions that aren't answered before i get cranky about it.
and all things being equal, i can't say i like the jobs being there, but i guess it's better than there being no company at all, eh? how many domestic jobs would have been lost then?
Well, Sealy does live in Michigan so I would guess he would be more alarmed by this than a lot of people. To many, this is just a political football. To those of us in Michigan, it's our friends' lives and careers being fucked and everyone's livelihood being adversely impacted.
I'll watch for his views with interest. I hope the story is untrue, or that it's only part of the story.
Silly girl. How many domestic jobs will be lost by building more cars overseas?
It's not necessarily silly. If manufacturing in lower cost countries makes it easier for GM to return to profitability then there is potentially an upside, depending of course on what GM does with those profits.
That said, in the short to medium term it is a bitter pill for Michigan to swallow (and suppliers in other states).
first of all, i'm not a "girl", silly boy... last time I checked, I'm a woman.
and second of all, cost benefit analysis always has to be done when considering any business plan.
maybe you'll learn that when you go to big boy school.....
Does this really surprise anyone? Who would want to do business here with all of the government regulations, unions, taxes, etc... Now there is going to be a carbon emissions tax/penalty whatever the hell you want to call it...
true enough.... and thanks. (though it wasn't silly at all...
as usual, you're a day late and a dollar short.
