Hmm. Nothing is ever that simple, but it certainly is good for the country and economy to have more people employed in a decent job.
But they are still moving the Focus to an existing plant in Mexico. So is this really a win? I mean the article claims most of this new funding is for electric vehicles (as Ford is finally seeing the writing on the wall) and self driving cars. Are Americans really ready to buy a Hybrid Mustang?
700? that's it?
Where are you in the glass half-full / glass half-empty debate?
I bet it is some kind of bargain related amount, something to make both the UAW's and the administration happy. It's also good on PR.
700 direct jobs could also lead to many more, we shall see. For now I am happy that 700 Americans will have a job.
I'll take 100% full or 100% empty or nothing./sarcasm
They say it was a business decision and there is no formal agreement.
The informal agreement is 'if you move those jobs to Mexico, I will slap a tariff on your cars and nobody will buy them.'
it's a FORD
few people buy them
You wouldn't hear me complain about getting a Porsche 918. That's one mean hybrid!
Naturally a pessimist. I have been trying to be more optimistic recently...
Be happy. A pessimist is just a well-informed optimist.
Good to see.
Looking forward to more of these types
Ah yes --
The sad part is the cars (at least the Focus) are still going to Mexico. They are adding 700 jobs to build cars that may or may not be seen for another 2 to 5 years (unless they show the Hybrid Mustang this year).
It's always full.
Sometimes it's filled with only air.
what if it's in space?
Then it's filled with dark energy.
Does it taste good?
Tastes great; not too filling.
Mexico is already paying for the wall, they just don't know it yet.
The non-existent wall that Trump isn't really going to build, that is.
700 isn't a lot for an economy but it is plenty for politics.
Ford Motor Co. announced Tuesday it was cancelling plans for a new US$1.6 billion plant in Mexico, and will, instead, invest $700 million in an expansion of its facility in Flat Rock, Mich.
Does that help with your analysis?
Those construction jobs are not permanent./ sarcasm
