      If you're tired of big corporations taking advantage of every day workers and taxpayers, do something about it, talk about it, because one of the reasons corporations get away with this kind of stuff is because people do or say nothing about it anymore!

      GM has screwed over the American workers bigtime. I just turned in my Cruze lease (it was a great car) but when my Equinox wears out, I'm buying American made, not an America nameplate.

      *you sir are delusiand taonal. You focused on GM with that whole bailout thing but lets not forget the manufacturer of your all so precious mustang ALSO took a bail out only they took it before the other two companies did so everyone got a bailout back then. Ford's was just not called a bailout merely because of timing. and they too moved the largest part of their manufacturing to Canada and Mexico. and why wouldn't any auto manufacturer focus on Japan and China look at how many people are in China almost a billion people. i do however agree on your opinon about the VOLT they didnt advertise it very well at all. Same thing with the Holden they kept that line open in Austrailia on a gentleman's agreememt once the perfect number the plant was closed and the Holdens all wen the way of the dodo. same thing with the Chevrolet SS which is just a re-badged holden would have liked to have. point is they are ALL corrupt money hungry police for the whole automotive industry. people like us that buy their car. even the Japanes no one is immune to it*

      If what he says towards the end of the video is correct, it may be ironically more "patriotic" to buy japanese/german cars than American cars in the future, because they're employing our workers. If GM is going to be using the labor of a rival nation to sustain it's brand and profits at the expense of domestic workers, can buying their products truly be patriotic? What does this make them in the end? Why not retool domestic factories, retrain domestic workers, and reform as a more high quality brand?

      Scotty you seem to be making some big assumptions here. Toyota and Honda do have factories in the United States, but where are the raw statistics? GM alone employs more Americans than Toyota, Nissan, or Honda combined. Far more of GM’s infrastructure is in the US hence more Americans work for them. This whole notion that somehow the Japanese car companies support more Americans than our home grown companies is fanciful, and is the result of clever marketing playing on your guilt in wanting to by American.

      GM (and Ford) only care about short term quarterly profits. They are in it to make their shareholders happy. The American factory worker is the victim of that mentality. Same for most companies these days. They run their companies on a quarterly basis to make money on their stock price. CEO's are generally compensated with stocks, so of course they are gonna run their companies so they can boost their stock prices, so when they sell, they make millions of dollars. We can thank Bill Clinton and the so called liberal Robert Reich and his cohorts for changing the tax deductibility limits on CEO's pay, forcing companies to change the way they pay CEO's. Now they are primarily compensated with stocks rather than a straight salary. No American CEO is gonna think about profits years or decades from now like Toyota or Honda do. Remove that cap(or include the so called "performance" based pay such as stocks into that cap and close the loophole) and maybe American CEO's will not have to make decisions based on maximizing stock prices, and maybe start to think about the long term again, how to gain and keep customers loyal for the long term like Toyota and Honda do buy building superior products. Americans can do it. I'm tired of hearing that American's can't build a reliable car. Look at Toyota and Honda. Many of their cars sold in the U.S. are made and built in the U.S. with a combination of parts made world wide but also U.S. (and Canadian) made. It's not that Americans can't build cars that are reliable. It's absolute nonsense to say Americans can't build quality and all the Japanese do. ( Mitsubishi's are crap for instance) It's the management and company culture that chooses not to. With G.M. and Ford choosing to shut down factories in the U.S. and concentrate on selling SUV's, CUV's, and trucks is very short sighted. Ford is planning on only selling one car, the Mustang. The rest will be a SUV, CUV or truck. I own a G.M. car. Chose to buy it to be patriotic and support American companies, despite G.M. being bailed out, and knowing they have had quality issues in the past. I assumed they would be better after bailout. But i've had many problems with it, that the dealership can not diagnose to fix them. Lots of drivability issues which i have seen on many G.M. forums as being very common but G.M. chooses not to issue any recalls to fix them. Either the dealers don't care or don't know how to fix them properly. Either way, I'm going to be buying an American made non hybrid non turbo 4 cylinder automatic Toyota in the future since Scotty highly recommends them. On the bright side, Toyota is finally caring about styling and driving dynamics. Hope this doesn't affect their reliability though like it did Nissan.

      This man speaks truth. Bought a Chevy Uplander '07 for sixteen thousand. It went through two transmission rebuilds. The first engine suffered catastrophic engine failure. No compensation from GM. LIke a fool, bought a brand new engine from Dearborn. It lasted fifty thousand miles. Fifty thousand miles. Fifty thousand miles. Fifty thousand miles. Fifty thousand miles. Fifty thousand miles. Did I mention that the new engine lasted FIFTY THOUSAND MILES?

      The name “GM” is misleading. The stockholders before the Obama bailout lost 100% of their investments. The stock became worthless under the US govt controlled bankruptcy.

      In addition, all the lenders to the old GM lost 100% of their money, too. The bonds were declared worthless under the Obama “bailout”.

      In all fairness, investors’ interest loose out in a bankruptcy. That is normal. But, lenders’ interests are supposed to receive priority of being paid off under our normal bankruptcy laws. Lenders get paid off before owners. Under the Obama plan, all these retirees and retirement accounts that held GM bonds lost everything!

      The only winner was the union which gained ownership of all the GM assets. Its position was secondary to the US government’s interests which were convertible to the newly issued stock with the same name.

      Without Obama’s intervention, GM would have been dissolved, the bond holders paid back some percentage of the loans and the assets would have been sold - most likely to Toyota, Nissan, BMW, Ford and Dodge. These companies would have used the assets to employee Americans - many as hard working & well-paid but non-union auto workers.

      But... Dems can’t loose their union dues paying ATMs. So the govt and unions went public with GM stock after the company got back on its feet. Govt broke even. The auto workers’ union made a killing, the Democrats kept getting their dues-funded donations.
      Money laundering like this is commonplace with the corrupt D party. ( The worst offending scam like this is public education spending and the NEA Teachers Union. One big money laundering scam!)

      Those poor old schmucks who owned GM bonds and those vendors who were owed hundreds of millions of dollars were the losers. Obama stole their wealth and used it to subsidize a major democrat donor - the UAW.

      The UAW (which is now controlled by genuine communists) doesn’t care that jobs are moving overseas. They’ve made a killing and will continue to do so as long as they keep feeding the democrats. There will just be fewer real workers in their union.

      The old GM is dead. The new one is a crony-capitalist, politically corrupt abortion!

      Please see the documentary films “Waiting for Superman” & “Agenda”.

      The trend economically in the U.S is that car sales are going to go down no matter who makes them. Wages down, inflation up equals a shrinking economy. GM looks like they are organizing for the future without trying to actively compete for today. They're jumping ahead sort of speak. GMs sold well in my locale. You see cruze's and Equinoxes everywhere. Being as they sold so well they saturated the market and the market also got worse in the mean time. Ford put a lot of pressure on GM and Chrysler by being managed better in which is now not practical to over come. That's my opinion on it. I personally don't think Japanese cars are worth their price compared to a domestic with a a high production rate. As always I like scottys presentation.
