So who gives a fuck? They will get paid anyway and still be able to afford dope.

Have you seen the price of a 4x4 lately? 45 thousand dollars. Who the fuck can afford that. Trucks are getting ridiculous.

I'm amazed that so many people actually get a vehicle that costs $45 to start. Of course they finance it, sometimes for 72 months. I recall when a car loan only ran 2 years. These are more than just transportation to the owners. They are status symbols and proof that anyone can be a road bully.

GM employees will but not the drivers who deliver the parts. This shutdown affects more then GM employees everyone who delivers there gets it worse. We dont get union pay plus unemployment. We get only unemployment which is only 475 a week.
