ok the honda of america thing. wut do you think that they ship in a bunch of japanese people to fill all the work they produce here. if you call any honda factory or dealership do you think youll only get a jap who speaks broken english. your simply wrong. yes the parent company gets a percentage of its profits. if you think that the people dont get paid good youre wrong. most of the execs are american too. oh yea and i guess you didnt know that japan has little natural recources. things like steel and aluminum. where do they get it hhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmm could it be american workers. ok so honda employs thousands of people here in AMERICA. ford builds its cars in MEXICO. i can pronounce the state where hondas are made, can u do that for ford.hmmmmm so hondas are made with quality american work and fords are made with 3rd world labor(yes mexico and canada might as well be 3rd world) so if you wanna buy a ford made by a guy makin 40 dollars a month go ahead. by the way im a junior in college i think you should take the economics course. and youll think twice about where to spend the check for letting uncle sam butt rape you, soldierboy.
