Henry Ford lowered *prices*, not wages. In fact, on this date (January 5) in 1914, Henry more than doubled the minimum wage of his factory workers – from $2.34 to $5.00 an hour AND announced a profit-sharing plan.
Oh, and there was no union in 1910, therefore no strikes.

So Scott. No comment on the fact that Quality is Job 6? And I don’t think that anyone will argue that auto workers have been coddled and overpaid for nearly a century. That’s one of many root causes of your problems. That and the fact that the megacorps have people employed to troll that intarwebs.
