Anger Grips Spring Hill Auto Workers

Peter Whoriskey from the Washington Post: As the workers and residents of this small town that launched the Saturn automobile see it, there are several villains in the collapse of the automakers' rescue plan. But what stuns many in this place defined by the GM auto plant and its 4,200 workers is that no person played a larger role in the demise of autoworker hopes than their own Senator Bob Corker, who is now regarded by some here with the kind of disdain reserved for traitors. Corker emerged as one of the leading critics of the rescue plan passed by the House. He lashed into the carmaker chief executives when they came to Washington looking for help. And it was Corker's alternative proposal, which was a plan that would have been tougher on union workers, that ultimately failed.
