More on the Dealer Closings--EEO Chapter

Well, twenty- or thirty-thousand jobs were lost.

But it was in the name of Equal Opportunity!!

Decisions on which car dealerships to close as part of the auto industry bailout — closures the Obama administration forced on General Motors and Chrysler — were based in part on race and gender, according to a report by Troubled Asset Relief Program Special Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky. …

Thus, to meet numbers forced on them by the Obama administration, General Motors and Chrysler were forced to shutter other, potentially more viable, dealerships.

I can think of at least one MAJOR old-line GM dealership in Milwaukee which was likely a victim of that 'race/gender' agenda, leaving the (former) franchisee with a $5 milllion land/building investment which will soon be damn near useless.

When you look at the map of dealerships, there was NO other possible reason to shut it down.
