Ford suffers UAW setback; Canadian workers OK cuts

/article/20091101/ANA02/911019994

As a Ford owner, shareholder, and taxpayer, I would fully support any shuttering of domestic facilities resulting from non-sustainable labor and a workforce pursuing their own best interests entirely independently of the entity that sustains their livelihoods.

Especially considering the UAW's inherent conflict of interest given its significant ownership stake in both of Ford's primary domestic competitors, Ford should enjoy the full support of its government and the American populace for any measures it may require to cope with any non-compliant factory labor that fails to appreciate the existential nature of Ford's challenges and the uneven playing field upon which Ford has been made to compete.

Let Ford's dissatisfied Kansas City workforce migrate to the greener pastures of GM and Chrysler in search of brighter futures.
