Most fords,chevys, etc are built in canada & mexico.....and their quality shows it....
American workers,not spoiled by union indoctrination, are actually the best in the world..
It's the union idea of less work for more pay that corrupts the quality of the "american" autos

There is no "union idea of less work for more pay." That's only a non-union biased opinion based on rhetoric, not fact.

If more companies treated their employees fairly and paid decent, livable wages like Honda, there wouldn't be a need for unions to protect workers.

It's unions that forced ideas like workplace safety, livable wages, retirement plans. Without workplace safety, how safe do you think the end product you strap your little boy or girl into would be? Without livable wages how many individuals would be on public assistance (let's ask Walmart greeters and cashiers how well they do financially)? Without the advent of retirement plans, social security would have went belly up the year I was born (1978).

Unions aren't always right. Neither are non-union companies. And to be completely open, I've never been in a union but yes, my family comes from a long line of defense contract unions (e.g., Grumman) and they were the hardest men working in that office - compared to the suits who were NON union.
