Considering it's already done so, yes.

You think the American economy has been able to handle domestic automakers paying forklift operators $102,000 when they should be making $24,000? Obviously not, and that's why it's all going down the tubes. UAW workers need to accept a 75% pay cut immediately instead of trying to steal from us hardworking taxpayers. The UAW offered to Congress: no pay cut at all until 2011? This is the planet that UAW has been living on. Hopefully this auto bailout business is bringing them out into the light for the world to see now.

It's unfortunate that GM and Chrysler could bring down Ford also due to the union structures in place. Ford has mentioned that they deserve the same union concessions as GM And Chrysler even if they don't take the bailout money. But, since the UAW offered no pay cuts until 2011 that is a spit in the face of American taxpayers so I guess Ford doesn't have to worry about getting on board with their "concession" anyway!
