    • A reason the UAW will never admit to. Wages.
      In any business as the wages go up the number of employees goes down. You can thank union and gov't for this.
      Unions demand higher wages for its members. Gov't demands higher wages for low income people, Minimum Wage.
      Within a company if a person can be replaced by a machine of some source, he will be replaced, because it is cheaper.
      So you have 2 groups that are guilty of creating unemployment; unions and gov't.

      • Detroit Auto Show: Ford's Atlas concept steals show

        DETROIT -- With GM trucks making their debut at the Detroit Auto Show, and Ram’s 1500 winning North American Truck of the Year, how does Ford stay in the spotlight?

    • Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe protested the military raid as an act that "threatened the lives of the hostages," according to a spokesman.

      Jean-Christophe Gray, a spokesman for British Prime Minister David Cameron, said Britain was not informed in advance of the raid but described the situation as "very grave and serious." French President Francois Hollande called it a "dramatic" situation involving dozens of hostages.

      Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg would not criticize the Algerian operation but said he wished the Norwegian government would have been notified before it started. He added that while Algeria has declined medical help, Norway will send a plane with medical equipment and personnel.

      • GM still has some deep problems, too, and it's hard to see its stock price getting close to the $52 breakeven price any time soon. GM's biggest albatross is its money-losing European operation, which is plagued with high costs, inflexible labor unions, and a recessionary European economy. GM says it plans to stop the losses there within three or four years, but it has whiffed on such promises before. GM is also behind Ford in terms of streamlining its global supply chain. And competition remains brutal in GM's home market, thanks to ever-rising quality and upstarts such as Hyundai and Kia.
