Or create an inferior product with limited options of production because a company's hands are tied paying over priced labor. Which hurt sales.

The union mindset of greed and hatred toward the very company which feeds it killed the union. UAW would rather have GM go under and lose 100% of a job forever instead of making salary concessions.
Thank you again for shedding meaningful light. Hopefully Lair understands
