General Motors...the day after

Just a couple more comments on this debacle and then I will let it die. From my point of view there are three groups:

Group 1: The Unclassified Salaried Employee. This is the group that "runs" the corporation. They are on the board, they set the requirements and path, they sit back and collect their bonuses for a job well done. They are asking themselves, "What the hell happened?" Their retirement and benefits remain intact.

Group 2: The Classified Salaried Employee. This is the group charged with implementing the brain farts of Group Number One. They were expected to work 10-12 hour days without overtime or their appraisals would show that they were not team players. Their retirement and benefits were or will be stripped from them.

Group 3: The UAW Workforce. Threaten to strike every three years if they didn't get their way. Ask Group 1 for and receive full pay for not doing anything. Ask Group 1 for and receive guaranteed overtime whether it's necessary or not. Punch your buddy in and do two jobs while your buddy is out on his boat. Not to worry, he'll do the same for you tomorrow. Their retirement and benefits remain intact.

I will probably never be able to buy a new car again but if I do, you can bet your a$$ it will not have a GM nameplate on it.
