AUTOMOBILE JOB LOSSES, STATE BY STATE

AUTOMOBILE JOB LOSSES, STATE BY STATE –As accurately noted in this graphic and article at CNN.com, automobile jobs are not confined to Detroit.

Look at the map of the United States, showing job losses for auto workers across the nation, and then check out some of the numbers. Btw even commentators appearing on Fox News Sunday noted that the CEOs in the financial industry were not compelled to appear before Congress, to get their $700B bailout authorized, as the heads of the Big Three were. ‘Double standard’ is too weak a term.
