Ford says lay offs not due to tariffs!!!!!!

Post by woody b » Tue Oct 16, 2018 9:55 am

Ford refutes media claim that tariffs caused lay offs. It's just more lies from the fake news media.
Multiple media reports have blamed Ford’s latest announcement of layoffs on President Donald J. Trump’s tariffs. A Ford spokesperson told Watchdog.org, however, that this is a mischaracterization. The latest job reduction will be for salaried employees, not manufacturing employees, and is a restructuring unrelated to the tariffs.

That Ford spokesman has obviously not consulted with sanfordandson!

He knows the inner workings at Ford better than anyone, just ask him.

Ya know whats funny about the lefty trump haters? It's that they never seem to wait at least 6 seconds before they jump on some fake story about trump ..everything is taken as legit INSTANTLY!!

Then a minute or two..sometimes it takes a couple days for the truth to come out.

If they could just hold off on the excitement a bit, there would be no fairy tales for them to spread on here...

The only delay in people like sandytroll is how long it takes for yahoo to publish their anti-Trump opinion for them. As soon as yahoo releases their opinion for them, it's a mad dash back here to regurgitate it.

In their defence, when the actual truth comes out, they at least follow up their troll thread with an admission that they jumped the gun 1/1024th percent of the time :D

Or they double down and tie it into Hitler, Charlottesville, climate change, the popular vote, rape culture, Russia, dead radical journalists...that's just from the last few days

Corporations need to be careful what they say. They didn't say it's not tariff just that it's a mischaraterization to say its the tariffs especially when other tariffs (on imported trucks) is what delivers most of their profit by forcing Americans to over pay.

The tariffs cost them about $1B and they are restructuring to restore the profits...not because of the tariffs exactly...but the new tariffs are just once removed.

The NOKO summit was just President Trump deflecting media attention from the Stormy Daniels made-up scandal. Ask Mark :lol:

And like all the rest of auto makers charging too much, for something that only costs $5000 if that to build. The problem with all of them find a style that sells good and stop wasting $$$$$$$$ on yearly tooling costs and running the prices up. I'm thinking another $5000 on each vehicle for pensions and the like. And then the huge costs of automation, robots and such, oh don't forget regulations too.

I'm late to the party too. My post to Sandy's thread got lost in cyberspace and I didn't bother trying again.
Anyway about a year before the tarrifs Ford had announced their plans to discontinue car production, except for Mustang and concentrate on the more profitable SUV and truck market. So the cutbacks isn't news.
Afraid our libtard snowflakes are wrong again.
