The recent case of the Home Depot guy who did a bad job and walked with 200-million highlights the problems that exist between management and the workers who actually assemble the product. Who's more important to the company in the end? The argument goes either way, but you still need both parties in at work on Monday morning. A fair wage for a job well done is the ideal of collective bargaining, isn't it? I think your take on Detroit is right. Management would cave to union demands to keep the metal rollng out of the door, and it became a bad habit for both sides. But Chrysler was not bailed out by the government. It was given a loan guaranteed by the government. That's not the same thing. The loans had to be -- and were -- paid back. Still, as you say, the domestic auto industry has been fixated on short-term results. Toyota has a 100-year plan. Addressing your comment about SUVs... it has to be said that the trend was market driven. Consumers wanted them, and the companies made 'em. if the profit margin was larger, well, who can blame the auto companies for taking their money.
