Shocking that a Korean automaker can have more domestic content than GM or Ford.

Chrysler is mainly Mexican and Italian.

It's good that the cars will be built in America - more jobs. Sure, the parts may come from somewhere else, but that's because we don't make much! www.manlyauto.com

Until I started working at Chrysler, I would have bought whatever was cheap and convenient. I didn't understand what an impact the auto industry had in the U.S. The jobs that it supplied our communities. Before I was working at Chrysler, I made 11.00 an hour, trying to support a family. Every 6 months I had to go to human resources and give them new paper work to fill out about getting more food stamps, and I never got used to it, it always felt humiliating that I couldn't put enough food on the table for my family. Chrysler pays me a fair wage now, and I don't need any government assistance. I will always buy an American made car, even if I lose my job at Chrysler, and don't work at any auto plant. It's nice working for a company that pays you a wage you can live off of, and support a family off of. I buy what I make.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Yes, I do recall hearing about JNAP when those employees were drinking alcohol and smoking pot in the local park. I assume the other plants are no different.

Chrysler cultivates an environmnet in which alcoholism and drug addiction are encouraged. Shame on them.
