please don't listen to the spineless people that work at
Tmmk. not all of them are spineless but those who believe everything that management tell them they are spineless and I like having things taken away from Them.
I hope like hell you'll get a union or at least the voice to represent the actual people who build a product it's time the Toyota in North America gets slapped upside the damn Head.

Lol. Toyota will never be union. As many as people that want to work for Toyota, will gladly cross a picket line and take your job. I will cross that line every day and go get paid for honest work. It's not hard work, and they pay and treat us well. No need for a union to step in and ruin that.

Typical stupid hillbilly view of life. Kentucky leads the nation in deaths from lung cancer and is last in education. Man gets a job at toyota and thinks he has hit the pinnacle of life while the rest of the world looks at you like the loser you really are. Keep bragging about how good they treat you so they can continue to cut your pay every year. You're the perfect robot

Bitter much? I worked 10 years at a place, becoming a assistant team leader, and didn't bring home $23000 a year . I was well qualified to do all positions, and did on a regular basis. Couldn't afford to use insurance, couldn't afford to support my self.

So yeah, Toyota treats you very well. Look at the way countless other companies treat employees. Money is good, you get 2 paid weeks of vacation just from shut downs, and the job isn't hard of you are willing to work.

Don't be so ungrateful!

In my experience, union workers are bad workers. They produce bad quality at a high cost. I would be willing to bet the average union worker IQ is barely average. Unions are on the brink of extinction.

my point exactly... all you know is the poverty level of kentucky so you are grateful for anything above min wage and dont feel you or your family deserve better in life. the very reason kentucky will always be at the poverty level or on disability checks

That is pretty funny calling someone a dumb hillbilly when you can't even get your facts straight. Kentucky is NOT last in education. They aren't even in the bottom five!

What does cancer rates have to do with Toyota? Are you saying Toyota is carcinogenic?

Did you consider that the Japanese Toyota plants produce better products because the plants use Japanese labor and not lazy, whiny Americans? Sorry, I doubt it has anything to do with them being union.

The UAW had 1.5 million members in '79. Now they have about 390,000 active members and 600,000 retired members. They lose members every year. You are probably burying more retired members every year than you are getting new members. The reason for this is simple. The UAW offers a service that is no longer needed.

14.3% of US residents live below the poverty level and the median household income is $52,762. In Kentucky 18.1% of residents live below the poverty level and the median household income is $42,248.

Scott County has a poverty rate of 13.4%(lower than national ave. and KY) and a median household income of $57,967.(greater than national ave. and KY ave.) Poverty rate is not adjusted for regional cost of living and Kentucky is a cheap state in which to live. www.census.gov

So where do these non-impoverished, above the national median income people work in Scott county? Do they work at Southern States or Wal-Mart or Swifty or something?

Not only are you bitter, but greedy as well I see.

Again, like I said before, go picket I hear the waiting list is high for people willing to work at fair wages. I have bettered my life by coming to toyota. Money isn't much of a worry for me as I don't live beyond my means. And as long as I do what is asked, the money will continue to come in.

You want more money from Toyota? Take the extra steps. Join your groups quality circle, stay late to clean. Earn it! Don't expect a hand out just for showing up and doing no more or less than the next person in line.

Want to better your self and living conditions and Toyota can't help that? Quit. Find another job. But you know you'll not be as well off now as you are at Toyota if you quit for somewhere else.

Remember while Chevy/Chrysler/ford may be doing ok, unions drove them nearly to their deaths.

let me give you 3 of the bottom ranked states in education... mississippi, kentucky and w.virginia..... now lets play a little game. can we guess why TOYOTA built their plants in these states??? stupid, cheap labor that feels they arent worthy enough to earn middle class pay! congrats pal, they found just what they wanted in you!

Japanese unions are your argument for unions here? That is lame. There are plants in other states that are non union as well. Why don't you quit Toyota and get a union job. You are the fraud....you have probably never been a union member. If you aren't pleased with the pay and benefits you are free to pursue other interests.

Are you an idiot? I just told you that Kentucky is NOT ranked bottom in education. Who told you they were? Was it your union rep?Remember this link:

http://homes.yahoo.com/news/where-the-best-an...

Neither is West Virginia. Kentucky is actually 10th in the nation and West Virginia is 9th. THAT IS NO WHERE NEAR THE BOTTOM!

Check it out:
http://247wallst.com/special-report/2013/01/1...

So know it is obvious your uneducated working class assumption is a faulty because two out of the three have good schools apparently.

You never did answer my question why Scott County residents have one of the highest standard of livings in the Kentucky and higher than the national average.

He's definitely an idiot. He wants the same for Toyota as the unions gave GM and Chrysler......shitty products and begging on hands and knees for a bailout. He's not even a union member and claims to know how great they are when the facts prove otherwise.

A lot of UNION workers broke their back so a puss like you could make the wages you do.....to listen to your stupid azz be so ignorant about that FACT makes me want to butt Fucc your mommy!! Again

Funny how you always make this argument of TWO union companies that got a bailout but somehow forget about the 17 NON-UNION banks and financial institutions that had to be saved by the government!!!!!!! Further PROOF of how use use RHETORIC to bolster support for your stupid arguments!
