    Good. Hopefully unions won't screw the pooch on another chance given the Detroit area.

    I have read the manufacturing will never return to the U.S. in any real amount and I have read contradictory papers which said that it is going to happen. These kind of jobs are in my opinion the type that helped build this country.

    Many of these manufacturing jobs have been automated and will not comeback anywhere. The UAW has made their labor overpriced in the US market, many automakers are putting up new plants in the US(Toyota, BMW, etc.) and have been successful creating many jobs. The Big 3 are not able to do this effectively due to their union contacts. It's more profitable to outsource these jobs to another country and larger public companies are all about profit!

    Perhaps, but that still doesn't mean we won't have the return of manufacturing. And as far as I know we are still the world's biggest manufacturer even with all of our reduction.

    Auto unions are dinosaurs. They are worse than government in efficiency.

    They're both equally adept at the art of distortion for extortion.

    Good. Hopefully corporate execs and unions won't screw the pooch on another chance given the Detroit area.

    get honest guys---it was both unions as well as corporate execs that screwed up the auto industry

    the unions will be ordering a slowdown or shutdown soon if they don't get a huge raise and more benefits.
