1. GM can't fail because it's important to American national security to have a strong industrial base, and
2. the UAW is a strong leftie constituency.
So why is it that when GM is all done being "restructured", so many more cars are going to be built outside the US?
The U.S. government is pouring billions into General Motors in hopes of reviving the domestic economy, but when the automaker completes its restructuring plan, many of the company's new jobs will be filled by workers overseas.
According to an outline the company has been sharing privately with Washington legislators, the number of cars that GM sells in the United States and builds in Mexico, China and South Korea will roughly double.
