If lazy incompetent UAW union workers are so great and dont need management why dont they build and sell their own cars in Detroit??? You say that the union slackers are the heroes and management destroyed Detroit. Lets see you and your lazy union co-slackers restore detroit.
If the union wins-- the consumer (those who buy the cars) will lose because of higher costs of cars. the auto builders received huge payments called "profit sharing" payments. Who the H--- do you think made those payments possible??? THE CONSUMERS WHO BOUGHT THE CARS!!!! WE MADE THOSE PAYMENTS POSSIBLE!!!
Profit sharing is directly tied to the company's profit. This helps to keep a handle on FIXED COSTS and is WHAT FORD WANTED.
Total Labor to build a UAW built vehicle is 8% of the cost on average. The Total Labor cost for the E-Series van is 6% of the cost to build (not sale price) of each vehicle. This info is per internal Ford sources.
Ford makes $10k and more profit per F-series truck. Ford makes $6k per E-Series van.
Ford makes profit on EVERY vehicle it sells, even the Focus and Fiesta. Focus is UAW built.
Ford built an assembly line to increase production of the Fusion in the US instead of Mexico.
Ford is moving production of the F-650 and F-750 from Mexico to the US.
Are you against Americans getting jobs? Do you think Ford has "thrown cost to the wind?"
My point is, it is NOWHERE as terrible as you want it to be. You need to stop repeating what your Daddy told you and start getting educated on how it is in 2014.
