It is hard to compete with the rest of the world. Nissan opens a plant in Texas and pays workers 20ish per hour and has 10,000 more people applying than needed. When we look at the auto industry of old there reaches a point that employees become too expensive. I think pay scales are somewhat inline today, but cost is hard to over come 50 years of build up.
But at GM the benefits were so good when I was laid off for a whole year we got 90 percent of our salary. AND GM EVEN SENT US TO SCHOOL FOR FREE.

In an economy where everyone wants to make more money, prices have to go up to cover the increase in wage so in the end it is illusion that you make more money....unless you make a huge wage jump.
Vehicles are way to expensive today. $40k for a new truck.....wow.
