But, UAW still wasn't happy about it at the time (why would they be? .... LOL)
I'm not blaming GM, but let's be honest, manufacturing cars overseas for overseas consumption does NOTHING to create jobs HERE; whereas, manufacturing cars here for overseas consumption would.
Our trade deficit has been killing us for decades, continually draining wealth out of America. Not saying we should criticize corporations for going overseas if it is in their best interests, but if we do, GM should not get a pass.
PS: The UAW reached an agreement with GM, but I didn't see anything about the UAW supporting GM's joint ventures in China. Wouldn't the UAW be inclined to prefer those jobs be here? .... BEEP BEEP.
