Thanks to the unions FORD will become totally automated
and what does it costs the companies when workers go on strike, go out to lunch at the nearest taverns? All states should have the right to work law that promotes competition, but you will see the unions fight this every step of the way. The current price of new vehicles is astronomical as it is, $40 grand for a vehicle?? and the say housing is bad. Henry ford started the assembly line and the assembly line will be finished with robots, sure there will always be a need for a human touch, but with the unions workers threatening to go out on strike especially after the tax payers bailed them out, clearly it's time to crank up the robots and put an end to union threats
GM and Chrysler CANNOT strike, and thus have not threatened to go on strike.
Bob King has said that a strike is not desireable at Ford, and there has NOT been a strike at Ford over a national contract since 1976!
So, who are these people you say are threatening a strike at the Big3? I can tell you, some of those few, old, dyed in the wool, left over from the 60's and 70's workers. You cannot evaluate the sentiment of a workforce of people based on what less than 1% is saying.
You do not have to pay $40 grand for a car, just like you do not have to pay $350 grand for a house.
