119. Not to mention the supply chains that need Detroit to stay alive
Foreign factories aren't as numerous as the Big Three plants are, and the suppliers are hanging on by a thread already. If the suppliers would lose half their business, they would probably go under as well, further hurting the entire auto industry in this country. Why do you think Toyota and Honda were urging Congress to help the domestic auto industry? They know they need those suppliers to keep their plants in business here too.
