Yes I work at Chryslers and yes i want to keep my job. Thats why my plant in Windsor is one of the best quality and profitable factories anywhere. We work our butts off to make great cars and change people's perceptions about North American built cars.
If the reason to buy a car is quality, then look no further than Chryslers cause our quality is up there with the best of them. Our lineup is the best ever.
With everyone wondering what they can do to help our economy, try to buy goods made in Canada or the US. I know it is difficult to find products made here but it really helps. We have done this to ourselves by buying overseas products to the point that most products are made elsewhere now and we have an ever so shrinking supply of good paying full time manufacturing jobs.
We as a nation should demand higher minimum wages for hard working adults trying to raise a family. No Person over 30 working full time in this country should make less than $15-$20 an hour.
Places like Mc Donalds should be forced to pay their employees much more as they make their billions of dollars on us while supplying us with crappy food.
Our economy needs more high paying manufacturing jobs not less.
If we keep losing our manufacturing sector in this country there will be no getting it back. We will become a nation with Natural resources and little else. And in the next 10 years when oil becomes less and less needed as we start to drive hybrids and all electric cars, our economy will take another huge blow.
Start buying domestic products!!
I respect your opinion and hope that the bad economy and the bad state of the American car companies don't affect your job but I would never buy an American car in my life.
These guys have been ripping us off for year giving us inferior products for high prices. Cars that are made to fall apart. If you look at the durability of an Accord or a Camry compared to its Ford/GM/Chrysler equivalent, the big three is spitting in our faces. They make gas guzzling cars, irresponsible handling of natural resources and then they have the audacity to put the blame on Americans and Canadians "wanting" gas guzzlers.
I don't hope for people to lose their jobs but I hope 3 new American car companies to surface and destroy the big three.
