    Nissan should lay off its entire design staff and start fresh. What I see in their showrooms are a bunch of ugly duds. I would never consider a Nissan brand

    The new $14 workers will not be on the assembly line. This lower tier wage was agreed on only for non-core jobs, which includes things like janitorial jobs, so the line workers are still earning a higher wage.

    1. I don't believe a new $14 worker will be allowed to work on an assembly line.
    2. Keep buying imports (even if they are made in the US or Canada) and betraying your country. Economy defines politics.

    Erick,
    You're correct about buying vehicles that are made in the US, not necessarily by domestic OEMs however. People say that H, T, N, & Hyundi all ship their profits back to the motherland, but if you figure that profit is the smallest amount of the price composition, a US of A built car is the best purchase you can make. Keep in mind that GM, F, and especially Chrysler all have a large mfg presence in Canada and Mexico too. To help the US economy, you're better off buying a H, T, or N that's built in one of their US plants than you are buying a G, F, or C that's made abroad.

    Erick,
    It is simple- unskilled labor in the USA competes against unskilled labor in Mexico and China. Where do you think it is cheaper to assemble cars ?
    Keep buying foreign cars and products, only endorses and encourages more growth in those areas of the world. It also sends any profits made overseas only to be invested in their plants and infrastructure - not here in USA.

    Geez... now that you can make $8.50 flipping burgers at many places and $11 an hour at some Starbucks, how is putting together world-class vehicles and working the assembly line worth only $14 an hour?

    This makes me sick.

    I don't think they'll be designing next gen concept Nissan from the states.

  • Kevin Posted: 2/21/2008 4:52pm PST

    What's the big deal about Nissan letting people go at their design center?! I read on another site that it's a total of 12 people (gasp)!!! Whoopy friggin' do!
