You've obviously never been to Tijuana where a mount of dirt in the middle of the road serves as the "stop" sign.

Like most Democratic shitholes in the US aren’t on par with that?

Or the same stretch of I70 in Pennsylvania being under construction for thirty years?

The UAW problem is that they know they can be shit ass workers that never have to answer for being shit ass workers.

I’d love to see the plants moved to Mexico as they truly seem to be better at shit than the US. For all the shit that people talk about the laziness and corruption in Mexico when compared to the US, the roads get done faster, the train got built faster, and they did t run over budget like the US.

About the only state that can build a new road or replace a road efficiently in the US is Florida. The roads here in Los Cabos feel smoother in a ****ing tour bus than they do in Tennessee in my truck and van. Lol

AZ does just fine with our Roads.

Midwest roads suck because of winter and salt.

I believe we’re being used, most don’t see it that way, but we are caught in between Ford, the UAW, the news media/reporters and a stream of politicians, congress, senators, representatives, local office etc.
Everyone just wants to post a story or content, clicks…etc.
You are 100% being used.

How? Simple, the UAW isn't really negotiating your raise, they are negotiating THEIR raise.

How high do you think your dues will be if you guys get the 40% you're asking for?

Now I am by no means saying you don't deserve a raise I am simply pointing out the union will get their fat cut as well.

This is coming from someone who both likes and dislikes unions even though I've been in them for almost 20 years.

Additionally I think the 40% plus a 20% reduction in hours (32hr work week) is beyond obsurd and makes the UAW look terrible and greedy.

I hope it all gets worked out before things get bad for your family's but I think someone needs to reel your union bosses in.

LMFAO

Without Mexico, USMCA would not be competitive with other regions at all.

Lol! Mexico isn’t even in the top 5.

Who are our politicians selling out to? It isn’t Mexico.

Who is buying up farm land in the US? Not Mexico

Who owns our politicians? Not Mexico

Who is destroying the country? Not Mexico

Who are pawns for the Chinese?

The people coming in illegally through Mexico are not Mexican and they are not funded by Mexico.

a 20% reduction in hours (32hr work week.
That hours reduction is simply the UAW looking for a way to increase membership. Since plants run 24/7 if you have people working fewer hours then you need to hire more people.
So more members for the UAW.
And more $$$ to the UAW leadership.

The UAW isn't using the partial strike strategy because they think it will be a short strike, but because they think it will be a long one.

Who's pushing all the illegals through their country into the USA?

Who's killing over 100,000 Americans a year with their drugs?

Who receives tens of billions of American dollars into their economy?


WTFU dudes.

China is making the opioids and pushing their fentanyl thru mexico, they are working with the cartels. The cartels are not mfr it.. I put the fentanyl deaths on Biden and China… everything starts with poor piss poor border policy under biden. The trade with mexico has been pretty mutually beneficial. I must fully disclose that I am very fond of latin women and have clapped many brown cheeks…

Possibly. Makes sense when you think about it from a union dues/revenue perspective.

Why should they stop them when America will let them waltz right in? Mexico has no need to spend resources on the problem the US welcomes with open arms.

It is like those signs people put up that exclaim their neighbor hates guns and is therefor an easy target.

Why do Cartels exist? If you look hard enough, I bet we have given them the money. Lol! Didn’t one of the DOJ top homies under Obummer have his personal pistol he was gifted get linked to some cartel murder? How many weapons has the ATF and DOJ given to the cartels?

Starting to see a trend here?

And besides, if people didn’t do drugs then the cartels wouldn’t be in business. They supply a product. Shitty ****ing people provide the demand. If we stopped Narcan’ing druggies then the problem would work itself out.

Money, we give billions out to everyone.

Sounds like maybe you should start blaming your politicians whom, as I said earlier, has sold the country out.

We’ve actually seen a huge uptick in arrests of Mexican nationals.

When I started back in 03’, it was 99+% Mexicans.

Can’t remember when it really changed. Maybe 2015ish or so. Groups would be all OTM and typically yes, the Mexican was the foot guide.

In the last year or so it’s changed again. Might be 50/50 or maybe even more Mex than any other nationality.

I can’t imagine how much the cartels make on Fentanyl pills. I bet they make them for less than a penny.

They go for $7-10 as singles on the street.

If you’re a street distributor, you can buy 4000 pills for like $1.10 each.

While I dislike unions and think they are unnecessary, I also think that companies should compensate a good worker. I also think they should get rid of the bad ones before they spread the bad throughout the company. The big three have a lot of fat, that provides a lot of jobs, that also provides a lot of waste. I still don't get why GM produces the GMC and Chevrolet version of the same truck. It's wasteful. You don't need a 100 different model choices of vehicles with 1 million configurations. Look at tesla. They have like what 5 models. Pick your biggest sellers and ditch the rest.

They produce GMC and Chevy because there is still a surprising amount of brand loyalty, and the products are differentiated enough to be profitable.
