    Wishing them the best.
    I approve of the large chunk that the union health fund is getting, as it is potentially more protective of the taxpayer.
    If the partners can find a way to make quality small cars in the United States, we might see a replenishment of these manufacturing jobs, although necessarily at more realistic compensation levels.

    Worth pointing out here that while the scale of the rescue is very different, the US government made money on its 1979 loan guarantees to Chrysler. Boy, those seem like long-ago days ...

    Never comfortable with this much government involvement. Wish I had more faith in the politicians in Washington. Guess we'll see what we will see.

    They're downsizing themselves into the oblivion...

    what is going to happen to all the vendors who work with GM? will they ever get paid?

  • JKD Posted: 6/1/2009 7:05am PDT

    They will become a simple Chinese and Korean rebadging shop. The sooner they die the better. Let's move this behind us and stop dumping more money into this loser.

    The biggest filing in US history ... this one will be studied by MBA students. I hope they can pull themselves together.

    This is ridiculous that such poorly run company is getting so much help. How many decent companies have gone under but never got a cent from the government.
