Plus the assembly men will get 16/HR tonput the car together, using at least 70% US steel, so wherenis the down side.

Why would that close a plant down in Mexico when they have NO labor laws and environmental laws to contend with and their biggest expense is bribing Mexican politicians to not allow any of those pesky things to interfere with business.

Don't know what the wage was before but I doubt it was much. When I was down there about 25 years ago it was around $6 a day.

Apparently minimum wage is around $5.50 USD. It WAS more like $6.50 at the start of the year but Covid has wreaked havoc on the exchange rate.

When I said MW I meant specifically for auto manufacturing.

USMCA makes Mexico pay 16/hr or more for autoworkers and they have to use a higher minimum of US steel.

Hood, Well , we will get more Steel jobs and as for the AW jobs, a better off Mexico is good for the US.
