Don't forget Tesla. By any rational accounting measure, they're a failure & they've been the most successful of any of them.

Also: perfect for you isn't the same as perfect for me. Ideally, I'd like GM to build as much as they could in Canada. I bet Mexicans feel the same about Mexico and so on.

My understanding of the whole thing is that the union leadership was much more interested in the strike than the rank and file. If so, it'll probably get ratified easily.
