Boo Hoo Ford you likely made eights times the profit the other factories made, but you don't put in your press releases. How much is enough when it comes to profits, why don't you pay everyone minimum wage then you guys will be able to pay executives millions more in stocks, what a joke all of you.

I definitely agree with Joe's much profits are enough?? And I would like to know the difference in the executives pay at these other plants..if the execs took a cut in pay then ford, gm and Chryslers profits might be up there where they wants them...oh..but we can't talk about that!!!
