When you grow up, you may realize that happiness is not related to the amount of $$ one makes in a job. It's about having pride in ones self and being treated with respect. I imagine you really hate all sport stars, seeing as how they make millions upon millions and still go on strike?

Here's the problem... You compare similar tasks across different companies, but then you separate making seats from making cars. That doesn't make sense, given they're both manufacturing jobs. To me, the difference between the guy making seats and the guy installing those seats is very much like the subtle difference between working at McDonalds and working at Wendy's. It's the same industry and same line of work, just different companies.

Having said that, it stand to reason that people who make the seats that go in the car deserve the same pay as those who put the seats in the car, right?

How can anybody say who deserves what? The seats are made by a different company than the company that installs them. Are you suggesting that everybody that works as a cashier at any retail outlet should make the same money?

I was responding to a post that said pretty much exactly that. I believe it was something along the lines of "work at wal mart, same pay as other stores" which suggests that people should be paid according to the customary pay for their line of work.

The thing is, that's pretty much how the labor market works. You'll find about the same pay between workers at McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, etc because all the jobs are basically the same. Likewise, yes, you'll probably find similar pay between cashiers at Kmart and Walmart.

What I asked was if that person believed that the people making the seats should be paid about the same as the people installing the seats, considering they're both doing manufacturing jobs. It only makes sense that they would be, in my opinion.

So, let me get this straight.. You start off saying that Toyota employees deserve the same pay as Ford because they do the same work, just like McDonalds workers should get the same pay as other fast food workers, and just like wal mart workers should get the same pay as other store workers, then turn right around and say only those who work at big auto plants deserve to make Ford/Toyota wages, even though it's the same basic work that's being done by those who work for supply manufacturers.

I hope you realize that you just disproved your own theory about "deserving" the bonus because you do the same work as Ford. I mean, if suppliers don't deserve it for doing the same work as Toyota and Ford, then Toyota surely doesn't deserve it simply for doing the same work as Ford. Using your logic, one could even argue that Ford and Toyota don't "deserve" the pay they get, based on the fact that so many thousands of Kentuckians do exactly the same work for a fraction of the pay.

Funny you only talk about Ford. What about Chrysler. They're getting $2,250. Don't they "deserve" $8,300, just like Ford?
