General Motors, the company that took millions of tax dollars to save American jobs recently cancelled its contract for domestic palladium with the Stillwater Mine in Montana. Why? Because our environmental laws and regulations are higher, our wages are higher, and our safety laws make domestic palladium a little more expensive in the United States. So GM, (thats Government Motors these days) chose to buy its palladium from mines in South Africa and Russia. Mines that pollute the environment and treat workers unfairly. Just this month, an accident in a South African killed 61 miners. The government owns GM and could prevent this, but the Presidents Car Czar sees no problem sending U.S. jobs to Russia. Maybe thats why hes called a Czar.
