The ultra-conservative National Review has published an article focusing on labor costs as a major cause of the uncompetitiveness of U.S. auto manufacturing. It's a useful summary of one part of the problem, although there's a subtext that seems to suggest that if we just bring labor costs back into sync with the rest of U.S. manufacturing, the problems of GM, Ford, Delphi, et al will just go away.
Some useful and interesting information about the dollars and cents numbers behind the union/management rhetoric. Just don't expect a critique of management's missteps.
