Here is where we start to bring jobs back to America. They should be told that if the cars are built in Mexico they will not be able to sell them in the US. The choice is theirs period!

Interesting idea... hmmmm... so by the same token, if Ford builds cars in Mexico or in Brazil, they should also be told they could not sell them in the U.S., right?

The truth? American workers are too demanding and overpriced. Latin Americans can do the same quality work if properly trained and supervised. Welcome to the age of globalization :)

To read some messages of envy and hatred against Mexico in THIS forum is now to be expected, but to read it in that web magazine too, really interesting.

Of course, Germans in Germany are not affected so much with the US racism against Latinos and Mexicans, that tries to sell Mexicans as if all were "banditos" and stone-age people. But I guess Germans are not so blind after all, and what they see is this:


and compare it to this...

Abandoned auto facilities in Detroit:

That's called Friedman neoliberalism... but of course, some of the racist of this forum will say that it is all because Mexican "sucked up all our resources with food stamps and stuff".


Wonder if you put it in Florida, those racist and right-wing Cubans that throw so much cr*p to Mexicans in the US would work as hard.

The hate and envy of the racist even landed in the Mexican youtube video!! I would translate freely:

-(racist) I could only Wish. I can only Buy MADE IN GERMANY Golfs.

-(racist) Oh wow, henco en meh-hico. something to be so proud of ! more like embarrassing. I won't buy any more vw's that are made there. Thank god the Passat is American made.

-(mexican in a Mexican video) do you not speak spanish,??? learn spanish .l. and shut up.

-(racist) Why would i speak Spanish when it is the least important language in my culture ?

-(sensible American) Amigos Made Better Cars than Chinese

-(mexican) Every one, every single Beettle is made in Mexico, proudly and no matter who is hurt by that. Totally made in Mexico, by Mexicans, and they go to the USA, Canada, Latin America, Europe and everywhere!!.

-(mexican) It is certified, that from all the VW factories in the World, the mexican ones are the one with better quality.


F.Yeah!! ;)

Look at the comments of the video about the last Old Beetle being produced. Everything was fine until the arrival of US racist.
