The BEG 3
Should the Big 3 get get loans? Being Rick Wagner ( CEO of GM) is a idiot along with Pres of the UAW. I watched 4+ hours of BS yesterday. R. Wagner could not turn on his mike with out help( the Ford and Mopar CEO did not need help). And 25 mins of 3 senators asking Wagner how much money GM needed. Talk about dancing around and never getting a straight answer. They finally drag out 12 Billion. And the way it went that would only last 3 months. Apr of 09 they will be back again hat in hand. I am a former AFCIO Union brother i felt very sad and anger about the UAW Pres. The Pre's of the UAW is giving all unions a very bad name. What a moron he did not know the answer's when asked ?'s. (I need to look at the contract more than a few times). Looked around like he did not have a glue in the world. On what was going on. Very piss poor performance by him. They way it went Ford is in the best shape then Mopar and GM is on life support. The Mopar and Ford seemed very willing to do what every it took to get help. GM looks like it need to be dragged kicking and screaming to get to the table. UAW very combative and we gave all we are willing to give. US tax payer's come rescue are stupid ass's. Yea if you want to have a job. Then maybe you should give up these company Destroying rules. like job banks and still having the line run at 80% when nobody is buying that model. Companies can't make money with workers sitting at home making 95% of their pay. And CEO's flying around in Lear Jets. 1 Senator asked each CEO if they would be like Lee Icoca (spelling) and only take 1 dollar a year until they made a profit. Mopar answered yes right away. As did Ford. Good old Rick Wagner said no i already took a 49% pay cut and but on the poor me act. Until the Senator told him still made over 6 digit salary with the pay cut. He then unwilling said yes. What a stupid ass. Let them file for Chapter 11 and get their house in order 1st. Then come to the US tax payer for help, if they still needed it.
