When I respond, or seek responses, I think of the Internet Republic and the people [[whump]] and the places who have made our water world Eden brave and free and fair. Permitted, required, and impossible. Stand alone or stand with, whose choice to what degree [[Thn/]] O[[thn/]]ne water world Eden under "We the people" – created by whom?

Who thinks likewise.

The figures may be much worse for some factories, including Fiat plants in Italy, analysts said. At the same time, German luxury carmakers like BMW and Mercedes continue to thrive and are operating at or near capacity.

Few business undertakings are more tortuous than closing a European car factory. Peugeot braved howls from unions and the new Socialist government of François Hollande this month when it said that it would close a plant in Aulnay, outside Paris, in hopes of stemming losses that reached €819 million, or $993 million, in the first half of this year.

Closing a plant typically requires a long and costly battle with unions, which have more legal rights than in the United States. German law, for example, requires companies to negotiate job cuts with worker representatives, who can demand large severance payments or pensions.

In an effort avoid a confrontation with labor, Peugeot has promised to convert its plant in Aulnay, which employs 3,000 people, to other, unspecified manufacturing. The company also promised to help employees find new jobs after car production ends in 2014.

So who thinks likewise.
