I left the 28.00 hour job because I was being bullied by the good old boys from the uaw
THere needs to be a shake down of their corrupt ways, it is not the ways of most employees
They have their own little pack and they can make life hard and I was often afraid to leave the parking lot in the dark

WHY do you suppose many hundreds of people left with the buy outs in droves?
Because its a good job? I was going down hill physically fast due to the poor conditions
Heavy exhaust fumes summer and closed up in the winter with dozens of cars running
There is a cloud of carbon monoxide daily (you can see) there is no ocea

It is just accepted, it was burning my eyes out and who knows what else. There is no good air in the placnt even on the lines the air is BLACK
Then theres body shop a flume of massive welding smoke by the hundreds of machines

People call the people cry babies thats where I loose my cool, the people made the company but they are big fat cats with ice for blood in bed with a corrupt union

This is what our country has come to we dont stand up for our people! There should be a demand of state of the art plants for this country not foreign countries

That's funny, how come the Claycomo ambulance is called for all Ford's medical emergencies. I have yet to see a contracted or in-house ambulance service for the plant.

A fact that I'm sure, not much of the public in general realizes.
Thanks for putting the spot light on this issue.

They are called for serious emergencies not all accidents, Im sure of some of its due to liability
They handle non emergency call they give stitches etc small emeregencies

While eating at Mustang Sally's, across from the plant recently, I have observed a number of Ford employees leave to go back to the assembly line after drinking heavily. I frankly am suprised some of them can walk back to their vehicles. Maybe a sobriety checkpoint nearby (if the head of the Village council would allow it) would help to eliminate some of the accidents that occur on the line. Thus cutting down on time spent on ambulance emergency calls which could let the citizens of the Village remain protected.
Just a thought.

Ford owns Claycomo and the fuzz u think they are not well aware of the party cove across the street has been in service forever 30 years at least
Its just a meeting place heck they can do the same thing right in the ford parking lot
The accidents can be due to fautly machinery slippery floors zillions of power guns, it is a very unsafe enviornment, came close to being seriously injured several times. Almost crushed by a car on a chain, almost run over by a speeding forklift
You can critisize all you want but dont dog all the people, theres drunks and druggies in every corporation
You saw a few out of thousands who can do their work without drinking. I do hate that theres no respect for the workers, the enviornment is one most cant handle
1 out of 10 people use to be able to survive the first 90days
Thats pretty slim considering the pay. It aint a cake walk
Your picking at the wrong people
The people that build the vehicles are the only ones that ever cared about quality or the future of ford. Ford and the union boys are PIGS
When they make their appearances about once a month
they usually have to wipe the crack off their noses
Union is corrupt all the wayyyyy up
The people work like DOGS!!!
Except for daddy's boys (which there are quite few) and buddy kissers (their the ones you do hear about that come in and sleep) and it does happen, but that too is a very few
Its for sure a good ole boys group! Walmart aint got nothing on ford
I was gonna do circles for the next 15 years because I wasnt a good ole boy
many men below me doing jobs I would never get

Far Out Man...
Say you woke up one day and your bed was gone. Your room, too. Gone. It's all gone. You wake up in an inky void. Not even a star. Okay, yes, it's a dumb idea, but just go with it. Now say you want to know if you move or not. Are you held fast in one spot? Or do you, say, list off to the left some? What I want to ask you is: Can you find out? Hell no. You can see that, sure. You don't need me to tell you. To move, you have to move to or away from ... well, from what? You'd have to say that you don't even get to use a word like "move" when you are the only body in that void. Sure. Okay.
Now, let's add the bed back. Your bed is with you in the void. But not for long -- it goes away from you. You don't have any way to get it back, so you just let it go. But so now we have a body in the void with you. So does the bed move, or do you move? Or both? Well, you can see as well as I that it can go any way you like. Flip a coin. Who's to say? It's best to just say that you move away from the bed, and that the bed goes away from you. No one can say who's held fast and who isn't.

Thank the hard working people not the union or company
quality has always been the concern of the employees
Many have taken disciplinary because they refuse to ship the what the company and union would allow, gotten time off myself for standing up for quality
It is the average joe that had made this company
Not the fat cats in power or across the street
Just got my monthly newletter with a picture of all the fat cats across the street
Talk about your worthless bullies all the way to the top including gettlefiner <spelling? He sold out the this town by moving the escape to his state

They do things for people if it benefits them, otherwise your on your own

This town would feel the affects if there were not these good paying jobs here, give credit to the majority of the employees not the fat cats
Thats the way it usually is I guess

Not the same Berdella!
This one is no relation either.
He has been a business owner and citizen of Village of Claycomo since he moved here from Toledo to help Cliff Pein at the DX station in the 40's.
You ask what he's on?
Probably Ovaltine.
