Glen Beck:The Word is Dumping the Dollar
Car dealers fight rapid closures; 180,000 workers could lose jobs
DETROIT — Car dealers from around the nation will be in Washington Wednesday to urge President Obama's automotive task force to let the economics, not the government, decide which car dealers should shut down, and when.
The task force has been pushing General Motors(gm) to trim its dealer ranks faster than the several years originally planned as part of its overall restructuring. Speeding up that process will only dump 180,000 more workers onto unemployment rolls in a recession, the dealer group argues.
