Not at all. Last 'Tube video I saw of the FCA production line for the Wrangler a lot of it was assembled with robotics.As have I. Do you think there'll be a union for a your private business that has a handful of employees? No. We're talking about multi billion dollar organizations that employ thousands.
Don't compare your mom and pop business to a multi billion. Try running FCA/GM/Ford with zero employees.
You're talking apples to oranges.
Same $hitty quality it is now. I say that after having the following done within first 6 months of ownership...I have been seeing that UAW has gone on strike at GM, but may also go on strike at Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep and Ford. My big question/concern is what will the build quality be like before UAW goes on strike for Jeep.
Very well said.I've worked for companies that are and aren't Union shops. It's a gross misconception from Union workers that companies don't value their Union employees. They all understand the importance of their factory workers. The problem lies with the often combative atmosphere that Unions spawn, intentionally or not. I've found the general work environment and worker attitudes to be superior at non-Union shops and the results year to year were also more consistent. It's not the 1930's anymore and American companies don't hold the industrial advantages that they did years ago. Workers at all levels within a company can no longer just go through the motions day to day and expect the company to stay competitive in a global market.
I know for a fact, when they were bailed out some 11 years ago, the loan was raided back with interest. The number 50 million in interest come to mind, but it can be Googled.I was reading about the GM strike. and a lot has to do GM trying to move out of country for there build lines. I find it funny that the government bails them out and they havent been paying back there debt and now they want to outsource. GM is in for a nice Spanking.
