    Chrysler announced its going to build Jeeps in China. Wonder why? Chocolate bar on a break beats a marijuana joint or a fifth of whiskey in management's book every time. Eat your heart out Trumka. Buckets got some learning 'dings' in it. Some American operators, like a guy we used to call "Waxer" because when he wasn't running the machine he was waxing it, would have been a little upset.

    That's slave labor. If you ever speak out in support of slave labor--and if you are completely ignorant of the horrible conditions many Chinese citizens face--your karma will getcha.

    And, thanks for the heads up on that. I'll not be buying Chrysler products this year (in fact, they are practically worthless piles of heavily overpowered junk anyway).

    Really?

    People who make the choice of traveling great distances from their family, to accept agreed upon wages in a city factory that are 4x higher than what they would have made back at the village, is slave labor? What silly people these millions of workers must be, to voluntarily become slaves.

    Their choice is to work for something or starve. And we want to limit their opportunity to work.

    How compassionate of us.

    They plan to sell cars to China, and its cheaper to make those cars, in china. I'm not sure why that concept is so hard for some to grasp.

    1000% stupid! China is the greatest economic miracle of all time. Before Republican capitalism in 1980 20 million were starving to death thanks to liberal policies. Now, that many buy cars each year!!


    If a liberal is not 1000%
    I'll eat my hat!!!

    I saw a documentary not too long ago focused on factory workers in china. They have they same sort of scheme there that many coal workers were forced into here in the US in the early part of our history.

    The job pays x, which sounds reasonable. However as a condition of the job you must live within their housing unit and pay us rent, the units are just bedrooms so you will take all your meals in our cafeteria, and of course pay a monthly food bill. At the end of the month, those workers take home only a portion of their "wages".

    Not saying every factory, or even most are like that, but it was a startling look into why the USA will never entice those low cost manufacturing jobs back.

    please don't believe the liberal lies. China is the greatest economic miracle in human history. THey went from 20 million starving to death each year under liberal policies to 20 million buying new cars each year under Republican capitalist policies. They have had 7-10% growth per year for 30 years.
