"Tonight we mourn the dissolution of capitalized labor," Jim Cramer told viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Monday.
General Motors has tentatively reached an agreement with the United Auto Workers union in favor of GM, and now Cramer believes the union has been weakened.
The next big money, he said, should be made in Ford, which is next to negotiate with the UAW. Cramer wants people to get into Ford ahead of its meeting with the union because he believes CEO Alan Mulally will turn those negotiations into money for shareholders.
