General Motors Informative - Corvette gift to Detroit :Pitcher
I was surprised to see that GM, a company trying very hard to economize and pay back a loan sponsored by the federal government (from my taxes) decide to make a gift of a new Corvette to the Detroit Tigers pitcher Galaragas on his almost no-hit game recently. The perception is nor one of a company that is trying to economize. Instead it appears to be gifting a professional athelete for just doing his job. Granted he is doing his job very well, but so are a lot of other professionals who have lower profile jobs, but no less important ones. That guy was an entertainer! How does this look to the general public who are pinching their pennies and a private company now controlled by the federal government just gives away a $50,000 car that we helped pay for the manufacture of?
