Fiat Chrysler Moving Ram Plant from Mexico to Michigan

Postby Professor Fate » Fri Jan 12, 2018 12:34 pm

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is feeling good about tax reform. So good that it says it's moving some of its truck production from Mexico to Michigan.

The automaker announced Thursday that it will spend more than $1 billion to revamp its Warren Truck Assembly Plant, which will start making the Ram heavy-duty truck in 2020. The truck is currently made in Saltillo, Mexico.

Fiat Chrysler said it will add 2,500 jobs in Michigan to support the move.

The company also said it's giving one-time $2,000 bonuses to 60,000 U.S. workers.
"It is only proper that our employees share in the savings generated by tax reform and that we openly acknowledge the resulting improvement in the U.S. business environment by investing in our industrial footprint accordingly," CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a press release.

Congratulations to Michigan workers.

Also, The prized $1.6 billion car factory awarded to Alabama by Toyota Motor and Mazda Motor could be an even bigger win than expected, as the site’s size leaves plenty of room for future expansions.

The 2,500-acre Huntsville location announced Wednesday is more than twice as big as the 1,100 acres the partners targeted initially, according to Bob Carter, Toyota’s sales chief for North America.

The Japanese automakers had been narrowing the list of possible locations for months before choosing the site that’s just 14 miles from Toyota’s nearby engine plant. The final location in the mostly non-unionized South also came with tax credits, abatements and training worth $370 million, according to Jerry Underwood, a spokesman for the Alabama Department of Commerce. The factory is expected to create 4,000 new jobs.

“Good news: Toyota and Mazda announce giant new Huntsville, Alabama, plant which will produce over 300,000 cars and SUV’s a year and employ 4000 people,” U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted. “Companies are coming back to the U.S. in a very big way. Congratulations Alabama!"

Yet another example of Trump being a RACIST. He's supporting jobs coming from Mexico because he hates Mexicans.

Our economy just keeps improving with home grown start ups.

There aren't anywhere near enough start ups to pay for the Bullet train slush fund, let alone Jerry's kids. (Illegal aliens)

Honest to God, I heard a news report about that list on the radio this morning. The reporter said, "Besides Los Angeles, the only other city on the west coast is Denver." Do we still teach geography in school, or has it been dropped for transgender sensitivity seminars?

My money's on Raleigh or Toronto.

That just isn't true and won't be even if you repeat it three times while clicking the heels of your ruby red slippers.

Over 10,000 companies have left California since 2007, including Toyota, Nissan NA, Carl's Jr, and Nestle. Jacobs Engineering Group, a firm that generates 12 Billion annually, left Pasadena for Texas.

What 'home grown startups' are going to replace that lost tax revenue, not to mention the jobs?

A couple hundred thousand pot dispensaries will easily make up for the loss.

Plus all the tax revenue from the bullet train.

Yeah, the bullet train. (font=sarcasm) That ought to be a huge moneymaker. As for the dope stores, the strict regulation practically guarantees a huge tax windfall.(/sarcasm)

I know it hasn't happened in recent memory, but if and when the federal law is eenforce, the party's over.

Yet the state GDP continues to rise. Unemployment (according to the BLS) is lower than the national average.

Unemployment rates are based on the amount of people collecting unemployment benefits. It doesn't take into account the people who have used up those benefits and have given up. Take a ride along the Santa Ana riverbed or through the Fashion district in downtown LA for a sampling of the folks who aren't even considered. Then add in illegals, if you can count that high. I only mention them because if we're going to be a sanctuary state, then they need to be included, too.
My point being, statistics are huge fabrications designed to support a political agenda.

According to
The Public Policy Institute of California, 4 out of 10 Californians are living at or below the poverty line.

Tell them how well the state is doing economically.

The bullet train is becoming a dumberer idea by the day, but our poverty rate has almost nothing to do with our tax or political situation. Same as all those Midwestern red states' situations don't.
