You mention the foriegn competitors.

Mercedes which also owns Chrysler = Dailmer Chrysler

Germany, where the union is a lot more powerful than that here in the US. Workers get over 60 DAYS paid vacations and the working hours are less than that in the US.

Lexus/Toyota which often works along with GM.
Japan, again work weeks are often shorter and layoffs are extremely rare.

US, layoffs are frequent, the work week is longer, and the corporations bickers often with the employees (UNION) publicly.
