With GM and the UAW set to start contract talks on 7/27, the two sides remain at odds over the idling of excess capacity at three U.S. plants. The UAW wants GM to commit to putting the idle capacity to use, but GM wants to  see a "healthy market recovery" before making such investments.

    Now look at that, who would have figured that after all main street did for the unions, bailing them out so they could keep there jobs and there pensions and not even a thank you just preaching the same old same old union "entitlement theology". You would have thought they would be grateful,but no. So here we are with nothing to show for all the debt we took on to save there sorry asses except an electric car nobody wants, a CEO who wants to raise the gasoline tax to force us to buy its electric car and unions who want, no expect us to pay them to sit and wait around around for full capacity to return. Yep thats the unions for sure. NOt the best and highest use for OUR MONEY thats for sure
