If GM Can't Buy and Sell Globally, Why Should UAW?
Washington Post: "The UAW got the assurances it wanted that GM would invest in building new products in the United States, thereby providing job security for members."
Detroit News: "The contract offers assurances from GM that it will continue to invest in its U.S. factories and maintain union jobs."
Just wondering, wouldn't it be fair then to ask UAW members to:
1. Agree to not take any vacations out of the U.S. or engage in any foreign travel to maintain U.S. tourism jobs.
2. Agree not to make any investments in stock or bonds outside the U.S.
3. Agree not to wear any foreign-made clothing, thereby providing job security for American apparel workers.
4. Agree not to eat any foreign-produced food products like bananas or coffee, to maintain U.S. agricultural jobs.
5. Agree not to watch any foreign-made movies, read any books by foreign authors, or listen to any foreign music.
In other words, if the UAW wants to restrict GM's ability to invest, buy and sell globally, shouldn't UAW workers agree to the same restrictions?
