Has anyone whom bought a GM product noticed as of late the following?

GM has $10B in negative working capital, has not been profitable for three years, and is partially shut down due to a supplier strike. This is happening at a time when the car selling cycle is headed downward and competition is fierce. Not a pretty scenario.

My understanding is that the GM layoffs due the the American Axle strike have mainly impacted vehicles that have a large unsold inventory. I wouldn't be surprised if there is some fine print in the GM-UAW contract that makes layoffs caused by a UAW action, even at a supplier, much less expensive for GM. I think this AAM strike and resulting layoffs at GM are more of a blessing than a curse. In the past, when there have been supplier labor problems that have hurt GM, GM leaned heavily on the parties involve and the problems were quickly resolved.

It was my understanding that GM was the only one of the big 3 who showed a profit in 2007.
