      @dean Nice try - but this has nothing to do with unions, a$$hole!

      The problem is a computer software problem.
      That makes it, by default, an outsourced job, not a GM job.

      Most IT jobs in the world are non-union jobs, fool.

      Why don't you ask the resident IT "expert", Karl Burgin about the problem.
      He has what he thinks are answers to everything.

      @Sammy from Scarborough Karl ALWAYS has the most intelligent answers, fool. That is why many despise him. He can show people up for what most of them are, idiots. Unlike the drivel that comes from you in your posts....

    All these recalls will mean that automakers will no longer be able to obtain liability insurance for recalls. this will them result in costs being passed to the suppliers.

    How many Chinese suppliers do you think will carry their own recall i surance?

      @ernie Product liability insurance is essential for all their suppliers and the car assemblers, however many companies decide to self-insure or their governments cover their potential exposure.

      GM is currently self-insuring their liabilities and it's costing their shareholders about $1 billion every quarter. It's all tax deductible so everyone gets to pay except the executives that made those bad decisions...they're still getting their bonus and pensions.
