And how many of these companies took government bailouts and turned around and gave millions to CEO's??? I'm sorry, but if you almost drove your company into bankruptcy and lost them so much money they had to take a government bailout, you don't deserve a bonus, much less a job.
Also, what's with government bailouts to start with? Why are we subsidizing poor management, failure to adapt and/or update, and ineptitude in general? As far as banks are concerned, that's why the FDIC was created - so if banks went bankrupt, people don't lose their money. How many car companies have gone out of business or been bought out by other car companies? For example, is AMC still around? Desoto? Hudson? Hupmobile? Mercury? Merkur? Nash? Oldsmobile? Packard? Pierce-Arrow? Plymouth or Pontiac? I had a 1956 Rambler. REO. There's the ever popular Studebaker...what do these have in common besides cool-looking cars? They went out of business or were bought out by other companies because they weren't profitable. Did the US economy collapse with the vanishing of these companies? Nope. In my opinion, the government should get out of subsidizing poor business plans or poor business practices. Let them fail. If they continue to make vehicles people don't want or refuse to update and automate, why is that everyone else's fault?
