Does toyota have a union?
There is a lot more that goes into a car than just assembly. It takes years of design and testing. Where was that done at? Accountants, lawyers, marketing, sales, IT, service, tech writing, yada yada... where are those jobs done at? Where are the raw materials coming from and what parts suppliers do they use?
I love my Toyota Celica GT! I have had both American and foreign cars in my 29 years of life. I have had a Mazda RX-7, Mercury Sable, Toyota MR2, Dodge Stealth, and an Olds Bravada. My foreign cars all ran better and had less problems. Toyota is a great company and don't be afaid to buy from them.
Last I checked GM employed about 150,000 US workers and Toyota was at 35,000.
If they were union they would have been fired because it would have cost them 5 billion to keep them around doing nothing.Quote:
I don't think any of the foreign makes that produce in the US, to include Mitsubishi, are unionized. Mostly because the workers realize that if they did bring in the union they would actually be worse off.
