Re: Video found of why the steep price hike!!

actually this should stay here.

SRT8 representatives should take second gander at how hard their workers work and try to justify the price hike to us after this video....


id love to hear...oh no, our SRT8s dont have employees who drink and smoke while building your precious 60K vehicles...

ok-

Don't you mean "our" workers (for the U.S. folks on the board)? We paid to keep them there.

Re: Video found of why the steep price hike!!

Yeah when you think about it. Spending too much money on a vehicle built by drunks/potsmokers (again and again now) after they already got all the money they need from my tax dollars, man, they should be paying ME to buy this Jeep!!

Re: Video found of why the steep price hike!!

These guys are tools. The impact on their work is secondary to the safety hazard they pose driving back to work.

I love how the newscasters commented that people think this reporting is anti-union. Unions suck and have ruined the country. I hope I live long enough to see every single one of them broken. /rant off

Re: Video found of why the steep price hike!!

Wait? Isn't everything better when you're high??? So why wouldnt the Jeep be?? lol

But seriously, they need to get stuff like this under control, isnt there some sort of manager or someone whose job it is to make sure factory guys are compliant with policy at all times? I guess there are ways around anything and everything but still?

Re: Video found of why the steep price hike!!

WOW. At the plant that I work at we are expected to hold a drug free workplace and if they even suspect something like this going on we get drug tested.

Re: Video found of why the steep price hike!!

Judging by the most recent ADDITIONAL price increase, I think it's time to start testing the marketing and accounting side of the house at Chrysler.
