    Also of note, according to the Department of Labor, the hourly compensation costs for all employees in manufacturing is $29.60. It’s a wonder Detroit has lasted this long.

      When you look at this it is no wonder the big 3 are in trouble. There again the uaw has priced itself out of a job. It is time the union went by the wayside.The auto workers need to start building a quality product at an affordable price and America will buy it. How many employees come to work and are under the influence of something and then try to build a vehicle??????The union protects them so they can not be fired.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
