They laid off hundreds (if not thousands) of engineers over the past few years and hired few of them back to date. They can now hire these young kids at a much cheaper cost while leaving the experienced, unemployed former workers languishing in Michigan.
This company cares about one thing- money- and could care less about any of the humans within their corporation.
Gosh, if they keep them at a plant in Ohio they may not even need to pay minimum wage once the new circus gets rolling.

Get ready for exciting lower wages.(not really ,you get paid a lot more in Wall Streets monopoly paper money, but it's worth a lot less). At least it's a J-O-B. Now get off the dole and be an engineer with a Columbus Public School edukashun
Aint it exciting! Look at that beautiful stock rise.

I would guess with fords past safety and quality problems they would want a good mix of engineers with experience and new engineers with maybe some new ideas.

In Marysville they are easy to spot:
1. They earn less than thier American peers in the industry.
2. The boss wears a lab coat and speaks little English and complaigns if they don't accept a salary for a 70 hour work week.
3. Make sure to smile and bow your head to the boss as he practices his golf swing
Frank vro very much for converting your $ to Yen

Spoken like a Honda collaborator. Now get back to work and make sure the boss in the lab coat doesn't see you not smiling and bowing your head.

Not really- I'm speaking about what happened to my relative and a large number of his co-workers at Ford- by the way he was also a graduate of the OSU school of engineering.
I actually have less use for Honda than I do for Ford and GM.
