the saddest part is yet to come. when they are hired, they stand in front of the same machine day in and day out for 8-12 hrs a day.
sometimes for 6 days a week, because the greedy imbeciles who run the show save money by overworking employees, even with overtime.
stale air, no natural light, harmful fumes from plastic, paint and metal.
then only a minutes warning to getting laid off because ford's latest car is sh-t, and they always run at a loss because their main source of revenue is government bailouts.
if i was one of them, i would be selling hotdogs to the people in line. you'd make more in one day than working there a month.

You know what it reminds me of? The Great Depression. Job lines during the Great Depression.
But never fear. The Government says we aren't in a recession....

Hows that CHANGE treating everyone? The people in that line sure don't feel like they have a lot of HOPE now. November will be our last chance to get the train back on the tracks..................

What is more truly sad about this OP...that an American manufacturing company stayed in America and is hiring American workers or that these unemployed people have a chance at acquiring a decent paying job? Not everyone can be a surgeon or an engineer, ok? Maybe they should stay home and try to collect welfare, would that make you happy? This is the stupidest post I've read in a while...
"Oh noooooooooo's, unemployed people being hired by an American company, this is sooooooooooooooo sad!"
If I was a betting man, I'd wager that you are unemployed and enjoy it. no money, no prospects, no problems, eh?
