RE: Ford cancels plans to build in Mexico, will invest in Michigan
This is what fucking Ford means by "pro-growth" policies.

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2016/04...o-a14.html


Quote:Based on terms of the 2015 UAW-Ford agreement the company is currently ripping out the existing lines of machinery to introduce new, faster equipment. The $300 million project is predicated on contract language that prevents higher-paid “legacy workers” (earning around $29 an hour) or even second tier workers, who earn between $15 and $19 per hour, from taking jobs on the new lines.

Ford workers have informed the WSWS Autoworker Newsletter that all positions on the new hot metal machinery will be filled exclusively by new hires, that is, a third tier, who will start at $9 per hour—fifty cents more than the state’s minimum wage of $8.50. These workers will top out at $12 after years of service.

This will doubtless apply at the Flat Rock plant as well.  These are not the head-of-household jobs that fuckface bragged about during the campaign.  But the shitheads who voted for him won't understand.

Oh Napo, my little previleged friend. Do you think you are entitled to make a post copypasted from reddit. For my personal opinion, why don't you stay on reddit? I mean, we all have it, why the redundancy? What is your opinion?

Oh I am really smart, I saw a post on reddit and bait people on AF.org. What hap? got your ass handed to you plenty of times over there? I thought you were Brit.

Hold up, since when does it matter where the fuck I found a news article? Are you really bringing that up? How desperate lol.

They're the norm in automotive now, though.  Combine that with other sweetheart state, federal, and labor provisions, my states auto industry favorite is making their near-minimum-wage workers collectively pay for the factory's utility bill....not even kidding....and it's easy to see why they would "invest" in america.

Aren't you the bleeding heart liberal now.

I know right, it's rather strange that the so called liberal left are the ones who most want their country to fail. Bizarre role reversal.

OP's article did mention that. It's sort of hard to pretend that Trump didn't have a positive impact on this one.

It's hard but people will still do it because they have their heads so far up their own asses to admit they might be wrong. It's what happens when you sit in an echo chamber and listen to the same bullshit over and over.

"Pro-Growth" policies are code for anti-worker, anti-consumer and anti-environment policies.  The workers get paid shit while the corporate scumbags argue against increases to minimum wage.

Hold on to your hat.  Much as with Hitler, you won't recognize 'Murrica in 10 years.

Ultimately though, I think the world is better off with the jobs in Mexico. Those jobs are sought after in Mexico, reduce illegal immigration to the US and Americans are a bunch of spoiled whiny babies who can learn to live with less.

Obama deported a shit ton of illegals that were here in the country. Also illegal immigrants don't even really have a affect on jobs if anything. 
Also they are people too wanting to live the Murican dream of owning their own freedom eagle, power scooter, make america great again hat,

He didn't even mention anything to do with reddit, maybe he did see it on there or maybe he didn't but it was me that mentioned reddit and yes he is "entitled" to post what he likes as long as it stays within the rules you, as a moderator, should know this.

If you hadn't noticed Napoleon was absent from the forums for a little while and doesn't seem to be as active as he was back when I signed up here. I can't really blame him to be honest as this place is a circlejerk at times.

Seems like you're the only one baiting here.
