You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette. The tariffs will take time to stabilize the steel industry. GM is failing due to poor leadership and contracts/pensions it can’t afford. The plant GM closing in Hamtramck makes crappy Chevy Volts that were heavily subsidized by the taxpayers (google Chevy Volt Subsidized) under an awful plan by the previous administration. If you read all the articles today on this you will see the Canada plant is definitely closed for good - and that’s a good thing! GM is willing to negotiate with the UAW if they want to be reasonable. I drive a Ford that was made in Michigan. I hope GM can continue to make cars in the state but they need to run their business better. Also, USMCA hasn’t been signed yet. That’s the game changer for us.

Bridge (Detroit Journalism Cooperative) has an article on the current status of the Fitzgerald neighborhood redevelopment project:

"Detroit wants to extend comeback to neighborhoods. So far, it’s a slow go."
