Default Ford moving to Mexico

http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...d-into-mexico/
We still will produce F150,250 etc but I see assembly lines that could be filled by veterans and unemployed Americans being shipped to Mexico...when do Americans march across the border and take jobs from Mexicans? When that happens you can bet Mexico will pay for a wall...
Grrr
*Sorry Sellers Sexton, I loved your pricing and your parts/repair center..
But someone's gonna pay..and you're the closest representative.


* and I don't own anything blue oval anymore

Do you think Ford is expecting Trump to win the election and they were scared he would keep them from leaving?

If profit is the reason for moving why don't they come out and say that the union wages that they pay is the reason, the UAW and other unions have cost the nation thousands of jobs.
I'm all for paying a decent wage for workers and the companies have to make a profit to keep stock holders happy and the doors open.

Lots of those workers who build a truck to sell to me make considerably more in a day that I do in a week. Something bad wrong in that picture.

The company won't come out and say what the problem is, high wages that jack up the price of the autos.
They don't want to fight the unions.

Yeah, Trump will really impress me if he takes steps to take on the unions. ALL of them.

I expect if Trump wins the job that he will be a one term president for two reasons, he will get tired of trying to get things done only have to fight every inch of the way to accomplish it, and he will make so many big shots with the union and civil service employee's mad that they would do anything to limit him from a second round as the #1 guy.
