Yeah Mexico, where the workers are not such cry babies like the spoiled ones in the big 3. You have got to get real. Put in a hard days work for a nice pay. That is all the an employer owes you. The union strong arm has ruined our once great auto industry. Then the unions cry about it when mexico and china get our jobs. Of course they do, you have made it too hard to do biz in America. I still buy only american but not for much longer as I'm fed up with our spoiled, over compensated unions. Love my Charger R/T but may never buy american again until the unions get real.

The Charger is produced in Canada.
As far as Mexico, companies prefer to build where they don't worry about worker's welfare.The head of Magna Powertrain, once put it, he would rather build in Mexico because when a worker gets hurt he can fire him. So much for the new world order.

I agree with your Canada comment. I used to think that the origin of the country that owned the car mattered but since as you say it doesn't.... My next car will be a Camry built right here in KY. Better car, supports our local economy, workers are treated GREAT there. I have a couple friends and one cousin that work at KTP (Ford Truck Plant) and one friend that works at TMMK (Toyota Camry plant). The attitude of the KTP workers has always been self serving and negative. The friend at the camry plant has worked there since it opened in 94 and loves it. In fact his daily drive is just under 2 hours! Tell me that the union has served its people well, NOT. All its done is take your money to elect liberals while at the same time putting your employer out of biz.
Just me

If name calling makes you feel better that's great. However, I have ALWAYS bought american even to the point of numerous arguments with friends who drive foreign. I own a 2008 Caravan, 08 Charger, and a 98 Wrangler. My grandfather owned a plymouth dealership until he died back in the 70's. When you get your head out of the sand long enough to be COMPLETELY HONEST with yourself you'll see that we are getting our butts kicked by the competition. And its not because of Engineering. The new Chevy Malibu is absolutely at the head of its class but have you checked the sticker price on it? Its $3,000 more than a Honda Accord with the exact same equipment. That's not competitive and the unions have a BIG part (not the only part) in that extra cost.
Open your eyes before you wake up and are working for the chinese. Accept a wage that is in line with what you do. No more of my tax money to your companies. You got yourself in this now get yourself out without joe the plumber's assistance!

Like it has nothing to do with the fact the the CEO's paid themselves literally MILLIONS along with the other high ranking greedy ..........or the fact they can hire labor at $3.50hr in in Mexico. No wonder.......American doesn't have jobs! We don't work for nothing! How dare a person earn 28/hr and have a pension. Shame on them for expecting that!!!xxxxxxxxxxx
