    DETROIT

    Ford Motor Co. says it's moving all of its U.S. small car production to Mexico.

    Ford CEO Mark Fields confirmed the long-expected move Wednesday during an event for investors and Wall Street analysts.
    Ford currently makes its Fiesta subcompact in Mexico, but its Focus and C-Max small cars are made in suburban Detroit.

    Making them in Mexico would boost company profits because of low wages there.

    I'm sure those auto plant workers will be selling insurance, providing medical care, or working in accounting within weeks.

    Mass immigration + outflow of manufacturing jobs = what exactly are 100 IQ people supposed to do for a living?

    What will Mexico do when Americans start heading there en masse because they have jobs and we don't?

    Surely they'll have an open border policy.

    Mexico gets good manufacturing jobs.

    America gets millions of (undocumented) uneducated, low-skill laborers.

    America in for another round of NAFTA ('Nother Afternoon of Fuckin' That Ass, only we ain't doin' the fuckin')

    On the contrary.

    When blaeks hear that jobs are moving out, they breathe a sigh of relief.

    i'm mostly shocked they didn't do this years ago

    the uaw guys here have taken cuts and all that over the past decade or so--but they still ain't
    working for what the Mexicans will


    and it works
    people will say fuck ford ---or fuck whatever company did it
    then they see the sticker price and buy the fucking thing

    can't be saved from ourselves--and can't blame ourselves for trying to save for ourselves

    I love the that shit libs think it's not a big deal. Jobs are leaving at an insane pace and those that aren't leaving are being "in-sourced" to cheap immigrants. This shits is not sustainable. I'm all for capitalism, but this cannot stand. These assholes can't replace American works and not expect to pay the taxes.

    Toyota is going to end up employing more people in the USA than Ford. Sad.

    Then they should be forced to sell the cars for $5K or less.
