In a perfect world, GM would build everything here, but this isn't a perfect world, and what some people seem to fail to realize is that GM is a business that needs to generate profit for its shareholders, not operate as a charitable organization.

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.

So anyone feel that Ford and FCA will be striked against, or not? I mean, won't they have to conform to similar concessions?

I guess maybe the difference is GM having factories shut down, while we haven't seen that with the others.

Back to the strike real quick...Never really heard if it caused a major drop in GM sales for instance?....How many days supplies of inventory were used, or is it all gone? Was this a major blow to the Corvette production? Are there going to be huge increases in MSRPs?....Did GM profits take a huge hit?...Or in the long run will the strike have been a non-issue? Just curious. Thanks….(I'll settle for the short answer versions, its just that I never heard anything about these questions one way or another)….Thanks again.

According to GM, the strike costed them 2.9 billion, with a B. Q3 earnings report out.

Probably won't hear about sales impact until the new year, thanks to quarterly reporting.
