  • The Beginning of the end for GM

    I was forwarded this today about the GM bankruptcy situation.

    Makes for interesting reading. We'll have to see if all that's laid out in the letter is truthful or not. Only time will tell I guess.

    In this case its about the fleecing of the pension and health benefit funds of the GM's represented employees (UAW), but it could just as easily be a group of non-union employees. Union or non-union is not the subject here, it's about robbing a family's future (yes, the whole family of the worker will feel the pinch).

    When the pension and H&W funds accounts are bare and can not support the people they were designed to, those people will come looking for help from Uncle Sam, that means you and I (Joe Taxpayer) will end up with additional burden that was not foreseen because a private funding vehicle was in place to take care of it.

    Time, cost, or quality; pick any two but you can't have all three.
