Well, now one of the big 3 is 55% owned by the UAW.
That should be the final nail in the coffin: the people that own the biggest share of the company are the ones constantly trying to squeeze more out of it, which is why they were losing money in the first place. But, hey, Obama took from the rich and gave to the poor, so it's all good, right?
I have 2 main points to make.
1. Apparently I missed the part where Obama handed out GM shares to the UAW. Care to enlighten me?
2. I wouldn't have such a problem with the UAW owning most of GM (assuming through legitimate purchase) if I felt confident that the workers really owned the UAW. But I think the UAW is like any organization - only concerned about itself. I don't think this is good for the workers nor the consumer - just good for lazy UAW fat cats. I think the UAW's actions during the auto bailout debate proved as much.
I personally don't care for the UAW nor modern unions in general. They just aren't needed in today's age. IMO, they are more like parasites. Of course I must not like unions because "the media told me so," huh Quiklilcav?
