Auto sales plunge

Toyota's and Honda's sales managed to drop even more than Ford's and G.M.'s, despite the absence of soul-sucking, productivity-destroying unionized labor in their plants.

Sales were down 37 percent at Toyota, 35 percent at Honda and 32 percent at the Ford Motor Company. General Motors and Nissan reported 31 percent declines over December a year ago.

Chrysler, which along with General Motors received a $4 billion from the federal government at the end of December to help them remain solvent, was expected to report a decrease of at least 40 percent later Monday.
Could it be that the right-wing narrative about the UAW is just a bunch of boilerplate union-busting slander?
