Bangkoktraveler Posted February 6, 2011 Report Share Posted February 6, 2011 Gee' date=' HH, ya think that maybe, just maybe, healthcare costs factor into it? That maybe auto manufacturers are happy to have Canada's "commie fucktard socialist" healthcare plan so much that they would move assembly jobs just across the river to Windsor? Ya think?? Tighten the latches on your bunker, and chew on that big boy![/quote'] Not taking sides against you, chap, but you would not know it from the BMW and Merk and Honda plants in the Southern US..... All less than 20 years old. And the BMW place in SC just announced plans to double in size. Which shoots your assumption all to hell. [color:red]In the South, foreign auto plants are all non-union.[/color] So they don't have to provide UAW benefits, including their health insurance plans. WRT the Canadian trade agreement, that is old news. What is not old news is how quickly medical costs have risen at US based UAW plants, and how it is still at zero in Canadian UAW plants. Worth close to $20k per worker in cost savings. So while Detroit dies on the vine, factories in Windsor continue to not only do well, but expand I'd say "back to you HH", but I have obviously offended his California pension-sucking chicken shit ass, and he has put me on ignore. Gee, i am soooo offended. The foreign plants on US soil also make profits which get shuffled back to the homeland, not the USA. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
