A $600 rebate is not a fix for the economy. Good paying jobs, not minimum wage jobs is the cure. When imports are being produced using 25 cent an hour labor how can we compete.
Tariffs on products made using almost slave labor and equal blocking measures against countries like Japan. They make it so expensive to buy an American car in Japan that the average worker can not afford one.
The steel industry went under due to poor management and dumping by foreign competitors. The automotive industry is following the same path.
Look at Delphi they just got approval to give $16.5 million in bonuses to the managers who led the company into bankruptcy. They only lost $231 million last month !!!! Stop giving management bonuses for losing money, let the leaders take reductions like the workers. They have more responsibility for the poor performance and should take at least an equal reduction in pay and benefits.
