Nothing, nor anyone is immune to these problems, except the greedy folks who got us here.  Sad

GM began taking clocks off the walls of their offices so they did not have to replace the batteries when they died, and they were researching into other pencils to see which brand was the cheapest.

Extreme measures...

So they have come to penny pinching while the higher ups make millions in salary and still run the company down??

Actually, let me correct that...the top brass must have come up with this idea of "saving" money and in return got another few hundered thousand tacked on to their salary. Efficiency on its best!
