Why is it unpopular to help auto workers?

I'm sort of taken aback by this. How dare workers in other industries condemn all the members of another industry? Where do people get off making generalizations about an industry that employs an enormous amount of people, an industry that completely supports one state---that currently has a ten percent unemployment rate. The people who condemn the auto industry should be careful not to come to Michigan and express those views; the result may be ugly. They're not condemning abstract principles, they're condemning people's lives, and real people tend to get pissed off when you suggest they should be thrown out of their jobs and onto the street.
