Beat Down From Laid-Off Car Dealership Employee

Posted by thejamkingshow on March 31, 2009

In boom times a car dealership scuffle would be mere tawdry spectacle. But with the auto industry playing a starring role in an epic recession, the video of an employee fracas at a dealership in Wayland, Mich. acquires some poignancy.

Employees at the Wayland Chevrolet dealership fought last Friday after learning in the morning that the dealership would be closing. They had drinks at lunch, according to local police, and then “one thing led to another.” One man may be charged with disorderly conduct, according to the Grand Rapids News.

A local TV station caught the fight on camera. The news team was at the dealership to do a story on the dealership’s closing, which will cost the local economy 30 jobs.

The reporter followed up with one of the men involved in the fight:

“Does it really matter how hard that you work because there’s always somebody a little above you that has the right to control every decision, every ounce of energy that you put forth?” the man said. “Don’t you have the right to be a little bit mad when somebody says, ‘Hey, we’re all done’?”

That’s why they are killing us. Some people haven’t bought an American car in 20 years. They had no reason to buy an American car. people are tired of bailouts and excuses. Time to let them go. It’s not the job of the government to save companies. Never has been. Detroit needs to start building better and cheaper cars. That’s the only way they will survive.
