The overall fact of the matter is that technology has displaced and even eliminated most of the blue collar jobs. But that is no reason nor any excuse for people like Ford not to give anybody a equal shot. They will understand they need to make jobs in order to pass the buck around and keep it flowing when profit margins sink because there are not enough middle classers buying anything.

Hold on US workers! German car manufacturers VW, Daimler and BMW are all planning to build new automobile factories in the US.

Wow, just wow. You do realise that the assembly lines of today, those guys wear protective masks so they don't breathe those fumes right? And who said work was easy? It's called work for a reason.
Here's the story about Ford Hiring in Chicago: online.wsj.com...
Personally, I think if you've been out of work for awhile $14.00 is a lot better then no money. But then again selling hotdogs to those waiting in line, wouldn't that make you the same greedy imbecile making your money off people that have nothing?

What's with the all the negative comments in this thread?
Have we really become this as a people? Deriding and mocking those people who stood in line for DAYS trying to get work? Are we so full of hatred and despise that we feel the need to blind ourselves from the utter truth of the matter? Are we so guilty that we can't see the video for what it truly is?
Then let me spell it out for you:
This video is Inspiration. We should be cheering for ourselves, as Americans - that indeed we are not Lazy sloths who demand hand outs for doing nothing.
That we believe we need to earn our keep and go to work to provide for ouselves and our families.
That we risk harsh conditions and can be EXTREMELY patient as we hope to become productive members of society again.
The second idea that we should take away from this is that people still need jobs!
Regardless of your political affiliations, the fact remains clear that there was ALOT of people trying to get a job! This much is painfully obvious even to those of you who continue to believe MSM lies and allow yourselves to be blinded from the truth.
For me, this restores alot of faith I have lost recently for our society. It warms my heart to see so many people braving those conditions to find a job. America still has hope.
