Why Couldn’t United Auto Workers Union Come To Deal With GM? | MSNBC


  1. Samuel Yeo says:

    Trump's tax cuts ONLY enrich the wealthy by a lot, but does not benefit the wage earners,who are still underpaid !

  2. Crimdor says:

    Wonder how much GM got paid by democrats to stiff their workers just for a headline?
    Disgusting world we live in.

  3. Lou Montana says:

    Republicans have degraded the American worker's wage to the point of poverty.
    Twenty dollars an hour is hardly a liveable wage.

  4. king0cans says:

    I want to know what the wages are…….

  5. king0cans says:

    The economy must be good

  6. Niki L says:

    More reason to use robots and start shutting down more plants in US.

  7. MADSAINT says:

    Robots are coming for your jobs😒😒😒😒

  8. Libertatus in Perpetuum says:

    They only make about $120 an hour including health care. Gee, why not ask for $200? This company should have been allowed to go bankrupt. I guarantee you they will be back again with their hand out. And the politicians who want the votes will screw all of us again and give them whatever they want. GM has become the giant black hole of tax money, you throw in money and get NOTHING in return except in 5 more years you throw in more money. And it goes on, again, and again and again.

  9. Teressa Dager says:

    Strength in Unions! Stay tough, workers have had it with corporate greed. Restore the American dream!

  10. Bruce Maddox says:

    eff GM

  11. Josh Gates says:

    GM sold out to China ten years ago.

  12. ethan orders says:

    You got the title backward. Why couldn't GM come to a deal for auto workers?

  13. Polarcupcheck says:

    Good for the workers. The CEOs are criminals.

  14. Lion P says:


  15. Yo-yos Tenbucks says:


  16. Gilmore Mccoy says:

    Ask trump 🤡 to fix it, after all Union workers voted for him. Still Winning……?

  17. Mossy horn Hunter says:

    When is G.M. going to give back the 12 billion in tax money they cost the U.S. tax payers?

  18. Seth Martin says:

    Which Democratic candidate supports union, fair wages, and affordable healthcare?

  19. Deplorable says:

    If they can make good cars like they used to they could strike

  20. mrfishbone100 says:

    This is the same way most US companies have been treating their workers for the better part of 30 years. Pay your workers fairly!

  21. RS1 says:

    Why Couldn't Fake News speak the truth to Americans? This is the bigger issue. As far as the ill advised woman now running GM and sending many of the jobs to China, what else can we say. As a GM owner over the years I find this woman out of touch with Americans.

  22. mott knil says:

    Maybe the union wants a bigger government bail out. Affordable healthcare?i guess you mean FREE.

  23. Steve Grayson says:

    Get ready to BAIL OUT Government MOTORS (GM)again AMERICA. This company should have been dissolved through bankruptcy in 2009. "We the People" have lost $11.2 billion to their Bail OUT. Plus the Government plans to cover an additional $80 billion short fall in the GM workers PENSIONS.

  24. Jean-Claude Arsenault says:

    A class of North Americans (US and Canada) have grown lazy and entitled during the Golden years, from 1945 to 1975. Now that Borders are open for Global markets, competing with other countries, is impossible.

  25. Tony Chaves says:

    greed and avarice on both sides , keep it up , you will price american consumers out with your overpriced disposable vehicles . I buy Japanese , much better product , reliability , durability , longevity are worth my hard earned dollar .

  26. Los Angeles Dodgers says:

    This is Trump's fault!!!!😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  27. Christopher Cobb says:

    These strikes speed automation. less and less people will be needed on the assembly line in only a matter of 8 to 10 years. The electric cars need very few workers to make.The only people left will be a desperate few. The UAW is in its last gasps of life. The BIG 3 will file for bankruptcy in 10 years to free itself from the debt liability promised to its retired workers and reopen under a large mutual fund 3 years later using 90% robots and 10% non union workers.

  28. Helzapoppin says:

    GM management is hopelessly incompetent. Who will CEOs blame after they automate everything and still cant sell inventory?

  29. Jake MacHine says:

    GM makes the worst cars on the market. Overpriced and cheaply made.Unfortunately, Obama bailed them out..

  30. Heidi Blake says:

    Unions are a joke. Let them picket and hire scabs.

  31. KopyKat81 says:

    Now you know why big business is moving to China and other places outside the US.

  32. Calvin Long says:

    My feeling is that the general public should boycott GM products until such time as they reach an agreement with the UAW (in support of them). I'm really tired of seeing my fellow Americans put out of work so that some executives can have more money.

  33. mighty mouse says:

    close the doors to UAW workers permanently GM. They don't deserve jobs or anything else. They want the UAW Democratic poverty and joblessness. Hire NONE UNION WORKERS who want work and security. UAW is DEMOCRAT POVERTY. GM CEO can give back the 21.6 MILLION BONUS and support non union workers. GM NEEDS TO GET ITS HEAD OUT OF ITS BUTT. UAW CAN DO THE SAME.

  34. Pall Woods says:


  35. StealieSteve says:

    Mary Barra is a Zionist 👹She is the mortal enemy of a healthy democracy.

  36. Sheik Yo Booty says:


  37. Jack Dyer says:

    Why don't you show the wages that UAW receive before you start feeling sorry for them. Hundreds of people would take their job for the hourly rate they have been able to weasel out of auto manufacturers. Tell the real story

  38. Eldest Gruff says:

    Well this is a nice way to get your jobs shipped to another country. Tariffs can only deter so much.

  39. Jeffrey Binder says:

    When will MSNBC get on this story ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKbOJrHUkvM

  40. tina Haynes says:

    Mexico is going to pay for the wall.
    No Mexico is going to build Chevy Blazers,
    We are going to pay for the wall.
    And the Tariffs

  41. Mo Fo says:

    GM never paid the taxpayers back either shut down or pay back the $80BILLION Obama gave you

  42. John Brown says:

    As far as I’m concerned the auto industry should be owned by the public from the bailout we have them

  43. dundunsar says:

    American Factory | Official Trailer | Netflix


    China stole many jobs from USA. Bring manufacturing jobs back and MAGA. What a joke!

  44. t henderson says:

    You're all gonna be unemployed.

  45. lefthandedpolack says:

    Why couldn't gm come to deal with the people? nbc is owned by comcast people.

  46. Juaco says:

    this is an opportunity for Trump to do something for the working-class let's see what he does

  47. Paul Napier says:

    As always the devil is in the details.

  48. Paul Napier says:

    GM needs a Engineer to run the company.

  49. Nutmeg Hash says:

    Fire them all. Move all plants out of the US. End result: better product, better workforce, cheaper cars, problem solved…tariffs irrelevant when the car can be built for 1/4 of the price with more qualified workers at a lower pay scale…and, side note, US made cars are total garbage.

  50. Harvey Smith says:

    I 💟 UNIONS!!!!

  51. Amalgamated Potato Packing Pocatello says:

    GM bought back $ 14 billion in stock since 2012 instead of building more manufacturing in USA

  52. Harvey Smith says:

    I 💟 UNIONS!!!!

  53. Harvey Smith says:

    I 💟 UNIONS!!!

  54. Harvey Smith says:

    I 💟 UNIONS!!!

  55. Harvey Smith says:

    I 💟 UNIONS!!!

  56. Chatty Cathy says:

    Good for them, don't let these corporations take advantage of you!!!

  57. peter baxter says:

    Was that Wilber Ross ? Maybe not because he seemed to be more or less awake through the whole segment.

  58. Stupid Durr says:

    Pasty white out incorrect incorrect MSNBC day after day, the devil's whiter and whiter typewriter, the devil's dance, heel to toe clickety click lickety fork tongue split, filling out the devil's formless meaningless corporate office space programming agenda.

  59. Nutmeg Hash says:

    GM, this is your chance to make yourself great again. Leave the US, you already sell more cars in China, keep building elsewhere with better workers that earn significantly less. Let the spoiled, inept US brats go on unemployment, regret their decision to bite the hand that feeds. They aren't worth $20 an hour let alone $63 + fantastic benefits, pension etc, move on, they are holding you back.

  60. John Woodford says:

    This is mighty lame reporting on a supposed progressive news network. Why not let autoworkers and union spokespersons tell people their version of what's going on? Most of the media is full of the GM management view.

  61. Craigslist Seller says:

    IT'S time to outsource and import more Filipino labor into the US to replace these overpaid GM workers. Contracted Filipinos are teaching in public schools in Texas, Chicago, Montana & Louisiana and they're coming to a school near you! Outsource and survive!

  62. De Cnijf Kris says:

    GM is a communist burocracy

  63. bonji woahso says:

    Greed! Need i say more?

  64. Jon B says:

    GM killed their own customers by refusing to admit to and covering up defects in their vehicles. I would never do business with them again.

  65. Char Aza says:

    Boycott GM.

  66. U. S. S. A. says:

    Seize the means of production. Glory to the proletariat. Down with the bourgeoisie.

  67. Non Sibi says:

    Wait a minute!! The auto workers GAVE UP BENEFITS & $$ to get the GM Corporation back on its feet last time around. Now that GM is making record profits, the auto workers are simply stating that it's time to return the helping hand [the benefits, etc.] to those who saved the corporation's butt, it's workers. Oh, but of course, Trump & the GOP has promised our auto workers that Trump has their back[side]. Are we tired of winning yet? Let them know in 2020. I will!

  68. J rsx says:

    GM got a huge tax cut with Trump and they still cant pay workers. What a bunch of BS

  69. Zorak0515 says:

    Because the UAW leaders are corrupt.

  70. C P says:

    I'm sure Fox News propaganda hour will make this look like the union workers are evil, just like they did with the Parkland students. Donald Trump will probably follow up with a tweet closing the propaganda loop.

  71. DonkeyLips McGee says:

    Thousands of Mexicans are coming to the U.S. daily who can push buttons, use an air wrench, and tac weld sheet metal.


    Even Wayne Gretzky got traded.

  72. Vivian Thom says:

    GM got bailed out how many times? And how much does union want? Need details of both side contracts proposals.

  73. Frisky Bottomsuuater says:


  74. God Bless General Lee says:

    I crack up at the uaw members who drive foreign cars.

  75. Peggy Trawick says:

    UAW Workers on strike

  76. Peggy Trawick says:

    We need solar panels and electric vehicles

  77. AGgie Moe says:

    Soooo they move the plants to Mexico to lower the cost to build cars then raise the price substantially once they get back to the states. Hummmm someone’s getting the bad end of this deal.

  78. Ginsengpills says:

    This is what Bernie Sanders was talking about wow, just heard his speech before this happened, Bernie2020

  79. Paul David says:

    Didn’t my tax dollars bail these people out once?

  80. QQTrick1QQ says:

    Greedy striking UAW's that already average 90k a year plus benefits. This union is strong arming an industry that has already closed plants and moved some production to other countries. They made 4 billion in profits last year. Instead of paying greedy union workers, a company that made over $4 billion in profits last year, paid nothing in federal income taxes and provided a huge compensation package for its CEO. start paying some taxes and restitution of the 50 billion dollar government bailout in 2008 that came out of the taxpayers pocket.

  81. Please Do Tell says:

    Fire them all

  82. british people yellow teeth says:

    $63/hr and benefits and this ungrateful dogs are begging more lmao fire them

  83. wei I says:


  84. onewhoseeks17 says:

    There's an awful lot of "company boys" in the comments.

  85. Charles Horton says:

    So $30 an hour isn't enough?????

  86. spoodles50 says:

    GM .. why do workers always think that because your business is doing well, they should get more of the money? These large unions are so corrupt. Globalization happened because of unions.

  87. Mike Crawford says:


  88. Mike B says:

    GM CEO does not get paid 500 million, you morons….All it takes is simple search
    Mary Barra · Salary
    $21.87 million USD (2018)
    Also, GM has been their own company since 2015. You expect Trump to run every USA business? This is just about a contract. Anyone that’s ever worked for a union knows what I’m talking about. Every 4 years you sign a new one.

  89. Mario Hernandez says:

    No on uses GM cars

  90. Mark Jones says:

    I just made 41.66 an hour walking the picket lines. Axe me a question.

  91. Amanda Harig says:

    He didn't break anything down!

    MSNBC is such a joke. I wish that Youtube would quit promoting it.

  92. G Sterling says:

    Those GM workers who survived the 2009 bankruptcy with their jobs intact seem to believe they are entitled to lifelong employment; where they share in the upside the Company experiences, but never in the downside. Ten years in any job is a good run, let alone in one that you have only because the government modified the bankruptcy code to give you a priority creditor position and to reduce the value of claims held by others that were of higher seniority than yours. Clearly the UAW members have no idea what other American workers, who weren't in a government favored position, have been going through the last ten

  93. Wolf Among Sheep says:

    GM offered a 2% joke of a raise.. $7B unrelated to the deal that they have to invest anyway. And future jobs in 4 years that has nothing to do with the people working there today.. They also offered to cut health insurance and get rid off profit sharing bonuses… ohh how generous of them..

  94. Todd bob says:

    Stay away from GM  folks….Buy from Ford   They didn't use bailout money and they make much much better vehicles.  _Scotty kilmer suggest Fords .

  95. Chemical Spore says:

    It's time for Corvette to be come it's own brand. Screw the rest of GM

  96. Harv Begal says:

    The solution for GM is quite simple. More robots and AI. Complete automation. It's happening in other sectors of the economy as well. I'm all for automating all jobs out of existence. Then a new economic model will have to be created. Capitalism can't exist when there are no jobs for 90% of people alive.

  97. Planet Of The Humans says:

    GM, a company that has posted $35 billion in profits over the past three years. Average inflation-adjusted hourly wages of auto workers have fallen by 24 percent since 2002.

  98. Tom Modeski says:

    U cant let temporary workers in good paying jobs or nobody eventually be fulltime with any benefits!

  99. mm California says:

    Unions and the Democrat party are cancers on America

  100. MBOZ _ says:

    Because chanting and holding up a picket sign changes absolutely nothing
