Very interesting. The dynamic of the auto industry has been changing for years.
For example, when Toyota first began to open manufacturing facilities in KY, they pretty much built community centers, complete with firehouses and daycare centers. Bare in mind, the meadian income in KY is something like 12,500$ anually. By buying fire trucks, building stations for them, and training fire rescue personel they not only increased the safety of their own plant, but the homes of their workers - meaning they come to work because they didnt have to deal with their house burning down or a medical emergency without professionals. The same reasons people do not invest in Mexico, pretty much. This is the repayment to Toyota, the stability provided. The reason they came to begin with is import tariffs, something we are opposed to, for some crazy reason.
All this while GM was moving to Canada and Mexico because of NAFTA.
I would rather support an American worker and a foreign CEO than the other way around. We can't all be 1%, despite the claims of some.
“Coming of age in a fascist police state will not be a barrel of fun for anybody, much less for people like me, who are not inclined to suffer Nazis gladly and feel only contempt for the cowardly flag-suckers who would gladly give up their outdated freedom to live for the mess of pottage they have been conned into believing will be freedom from fear.”
