Our car industry is shrinking itself into oblivion. They are moving production to China, Mexico, India and other low-cost countries. Why? Well, for one reason, a union worker screwing bolts into a car on the assembly line costs some $100 grand a year, counting all the goodies, like health insurance, retirement, vacation, sick leave etc etc. Well, the unions have decimated our car industry, along with the steel industry, appliances, electronics and on and on. The good news is that when this stuff is made in Mexico and China, it costs the consumers here half or less what it would cost for the same stuff made in America. But the really good news is that the disappearance of manufacturing here will finish off the greedy unions once and for all. We can thank them for wiping out our industry. Then, hopefully, we can get back to more sensible wages and employers can quit being welfare states providing health insurance and retirement. And, when our wages come down to be closer to Mexico, our illegal alien problem will disappear.
