Trucking jobs threatened by Chrysler and GM

The GM Co. and Chrysler, promised the preservation of U.S jobs, by taking billions of dollars from the U.S tax payers, but now are threatening the Union jobs to vulnerable situations.

They are aggressively reducing the costs by employing cheap, non-union car hauling companies to transport vehicles from factories to dealer lots, putting people out of work. "Many of these replacement drivers come with little experience, inadequate training, no accountability and inadequate equipment," the letters say in the report. The money was to preserve good jobs and keep the industries alive.
"It's particularly offensive that GM and Fiat-Chrysler are taking the lead in cutting corners, threatening the safety and economic security of the taxpayers and car buyers who have footed the bill - tens of billions of dollars - to bail them out," said by Rosemary Shahan, founder and president of Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety

Already, nearly 400 jobs are cut since Oct 1, when GM and Chrysler moved to their new business model. It is known that the average rate of unemployment is higher in Detroit than the national average unemployment rate.

Before, auto industry was in Obama's hand but now in the hands of Chrysler and GM.
