Number of jobs that domestics employ

http://www.levelfieldinstitute.org/index.htm

read both PDF pages. It states how many US suppliers provide parts and how many jobs that it provides to US citizens.

Level Field is a grassroots organization founded by retirees of Chrysler, Ford, GM and the companies that supply them.

the first line already says it all, there will be automatic biased in anything they right.

and since when was chrysler american?

and its funny how chrysler is top on the jobs per car sold....yet it is foriegn owned, funny how they threw it into the equation to bump up domestic numbers.



and how many americans do the factories in mexico and canada support?

So is it better to buy a Ford Fusion, with 30% domestic content, than a Honda Accord, which has 70% domestic content?

I read through all the info posted. Figures were primarily based on 2005 stats. But what 2005 stats? The ones posted in January 2006? Or stats that were published in January 2005? If published in 2005, those figures reflect 2004.


There is one way to easily check what vehicle has what parts content. By law, it has to be listed on the MSRP window sticker.

From memory the fusion is 65% or so (but I can't really recall) - but I understand the point you are trying to make...

Did'ja notice that the guy who said "it was confusing" inre to Domestic Content is the founder of the Level Field Institute? That's the same group the OP of this thread posted the link to.


The guy is the founder of the Level Field Institute and is confused? Wasn't that the reason the Institute was founded, to spell out domestic content and how many jobs the US based auto makers provide compared to companies based elsewhere?


He's confused? Go figure.

Hahaha.......just what I was thinking.

And then there was this:
"(David Cole) would leave it to Americans to judge for themselves what is a domestic car."

Well Mr. Cole, IMO, based on simple logic, I think that would be at least 51%. Which makes Ford's Fusion - foreign, and Honda's Accord - American.

Thanks, Mr. Cole for clarifying this issue........Now, what to do about that pesky Mexican-built (foreign) Super Duty in my garage. Hmmm.....

Anyone close to a sticker on a Fusion to find out the real number?
