I agree with some of it.The Big 3 should can anyone making over 20 per hr and rehire workers at 12 or so an hour and make employees pay 75.00 per week of their health insurance.

ITs obvious that the UAW has hurt the big 3 and the entitlement mentallity has killed AMerican cars and it wasnt until bankrupcy loomed that the union decided to give concesions.Bankrupt and lose your overpaid cushy job, or take concessions and make money at your cushy job.

If the big 3 can get alittle faster with smaller cars and mid sized cars that look abit better and cut cost,they will make a nice comback and will be respected like Toyota,Honda ect.

If youthink making $12.00 an hour is going to make a better car and make it cheaper, smoke another one dreamer!! Toyota & Honda workers make the same as UAW but without a union and they don't have their wages published in the news like union shops either. The unions created the middle class, so if you think the world would better by us all making $12.00 hr. give your head a shake!!$12.00 an hour is still too much compared to mexican and chinese workers so how low do you go, where does it stop? Your so hateful toward something you judge by hearsay and rumour, it just shows your ignorance. How about CEO's making millions of dollars regardless of how the company performs? No one talks about the ridiculous compensation of global executives that move our jobs offshore. How low would you go in your wage before you you would say ENOUGH!!?? Because after the unions are all gone, YOUR NEXT PAL!! ALL YOU HATEFUL ASS-HOLES will have your turn and what are you going to do about it?? NOTHING just kiss ass like you always have but it'll do no good this time, and you have NO RECOURSE. Have a nice day stupid!

When it comes to American car manufacturers, they just don’t get it. They can advertise all they want about quality is job one, and we make the most reliable cars and trucks on the planet, and it makes no difference because the American people know its all bull. Only the gullible Union idiots are stupid enough to keep buying their junk under the premise of loyalty. You’re wasting your money idiots.

I've never worked much, In fact
I've been poor all my life
I guess all I really own
Is ten kids and a wife
This house I live in is mine
But it's really a [Dm] shack
But I've always managed to somehow
drive me a brand new Cadillac.

The back door steps ...
They done fell plumb down
The front screen door is off and
Laying somewhere out there on the ground
The wind just now whooped
Up another piece of that tar
Roofing off the back; I sure hope it don't
skin up that new Cadillac.

The front porch post fell
loose at the bottom
It don't make no sense to fix 'em
'Cause that floor's just too darn rotten
In Winter time we sometimes have some snow
That blows in through the cracks
If it gets too bad we all just pile up
And sleep out there in that new Cadillac.

I know the place ain't much
But I sure don't pay no rent
I get a check the first of every month
>From this here Federal Goverment
Every Wednesday I get commodities
Sometimes four or five sacks
Pick 'em up down at the Welfare Office
Driving that new Cadillac.

Some folks say I'm crazy
And I've even been called a fool
But my kids get free books and
All them there free lunches at school
We get peanut butter and cheese
And man, they give us flour by the sack
'Course them Welfare Checks
They meet the payments on this new Cadillac.

Now the way that I see it
These other folk are the fools
They're working and paying taxes
Just to send my young'uns through school
The Salvation Army cuts their hair and
Gives them clothes to wear on their backs
So we can dress up and ride around
And show off this new Cadillac.

But things are still gonna get better yet
At least that's what I understand
They tell me this new President
Has put in a whole new poverty plan
He's gonna send us poor folks money
They say we're gonna get it out here in sacks
In fact, my wife's already shopping around
For her new Cadillac.

People look around you. What do you see? Are we in a crisis? How can United States Americans' spend money if the circle stops: earn money, spend money? And no it's not just in automobiles, but in everything you see.. Get over your ingnorance and be proud this milestone has ended. Stop wasting your energy on stupid comments (or take it as a joke - your choice). For we are headed down a long road of recovery because we are not contributing to help "OUR" economy grow.(nice poem by the way!) Proud of Ford! They could of easily taken these jobs overseas or to Mexico, or Canada, where ever. Bringing down these workers pay is not going to bring down our growing prices for food, clothes, gas etc. And to the ignorant person refering to the "hitler contribution" comment grow up! We cannot change the past. In that case the European's should give back this great land to the Native American's of which their ancestor were cheated out of. Get over it. Or better yet do something about it and get them out of reservation camps and give them your land. How many natives were not masacred in the land you live today?...

Please go take and pass a 6th grade english class and learn how to write. It's dumb asses like you that make the American workforce look bad, not the people who work hard to make decent money.

I work on the assembly line and I can guarantee you that I do NOT sit on my ass and make $30.00 per hour. In fact I do not make $30.00 per hour. It is misinformed people like you spreading misinformation that make the American workforce look bad. Please educate yourself before posting bad information.
What is funny is that we have given many concessions the last 5+ years. When things were good in the late 90's Ford was fine the the wages and benefits we receive. Ford was making record profits, paying record bonuses etc. but when things went bad everyone assumes it is the unions fault. The union did not design cars the buying public didn't want. The union did not plan on trucks and SUV's being the bread and butter of the company and ignore the car market.

Ford employees are the salt of the earth, I know because the chairman of the board of directors in Claycomo said so. Yes he is also the UAW president so he should know. And don't say "conflict of interest" because that would be total nonsense!
