As Americans prepare to cast their vote in the upcoming presidential election, many are focusing on the success of President Barack Obama’s administration and reflecting on how the government’s recent efforts to stimulate the economy will impact the future of the country. A recent article from The Detroit Free Press reveals that despite the initial widespread opposition to the government’s plans to bailout automakers General Motors and Chrysler, many are now commending the efforts that have proven to help rebuild the American auto industry. Julie Nguyen Brown of Plastech, an experienced professional in the American auto industry, reflects on the sector’s recent growth and its overall impact on the country’s economy.
Julie Brown, Plastech CEO, comments, “Mr. King was absolutely correct in his statement about industry bailout. It is easy to forget how difficult the situation was. There was no credit available, even to profitable companies. Without the bailout, the entire auto industry would have been wiped out, hurting millions of people, including suppliers who provide parts to the auto companies, dealers, assembly workers, logistics companies, and related organizations that function within the sector. This would have caused the worst depression in history, and the auto industry would not have undergone the recovery that it has to date.”
According to the article, some auto industry professionals have backed the government aid, noting the benefits firsthand. At the DNC, Karen Eusanio of GM’s Lordstown Assembly in Ohio stated, “When the auto industry was on its last legs, I was laid off—and I was terrified. Today, I’m back at work. We have three shifts building cars of the future.”
Despite signs of progress, the article also notes that some Americans remain critical of the current unemployment rate, which was recorded at an 8.3 percent peak in July. While the unemployment rate relies on job growth within several other industries, Julie Brown notes that the auto industry was a great place to start in an effort to expand business and create new positions.
