Covering GM-UAW Event Today? Better Drive an American Car

According to Automotive News reporter Krishna Anatharaman, members of the media who aren’t driving American-branded cars won’t be able to park in the building deck of today’s UAW-GM handshake event.

Before you say, “What the Toyota Camry?” keep in mind: Most of the automakers make you park in hinterlands if you don’t drive what they like.

Today’s event at GM signals the beginning of negotiations between the Big Three automakers and United Auto Workers union. Negotiations are expected to focus on bringing “second-tier” workers’ pay more in line with veteran workers who were hired before the recession.

None of them give up their free time to coach Soccer ? In your warped view of the world, they are all lazy thugs eh ? You sir, have insulted me, my family, and most of my friends. Two words come to mind.... dude...Anal Orfice

      @Master Baiter As would you, in case you missed my obvious point.

    It's just disrespectful at best. I'd park miles down the street and ride the bus in, if I worked for GM and drove a different brand. I'd at least show up in a Citation with a million miles, parking it down the street at night and driving it in, in the morning. Hey they might give me a brand new Saturn out of sympathy? But it's just common sense to buy/own what you build for a living. So at least you CAN complain if you're laid off. Not that even buying a new Silverado or Escalade will keep yourself employed when things get slow, but you never know (who's watching).

    This only makes enemies where there were none before. Thuggish and childish to expect the MEDIA to show up in what you want. God forbid a non-UAW car shows up that catches someone's attention (Look away brother! Think pure thoughts!) Employees' cars are a different story perhaps.
