  • American axle will not make axels in the USA

    American Axle will not make axles in the USA. They are closing the plant for at least the summer, and maybe longer. They are transferring all work to their Mexican plants. So since they aren't making any axles in America any more. They will be putting upwards of 500 people on the street. According to the UAW release. Which AA denies.

    Should they have to change their name to MEXICAN Axle And remember their biggest customer is GM. Which was part of GM before they sold it off! And does that mean all new GM cars will have a low rider and hopping option

    Mexico is American as is Canada. We, on the other hand are in the United States of America. We are no more nor no less American in the US. These tasteless comments go along way toward making the US look very racist.

        I disagree. It's not racist to mention the word "Mexican". There is, however, something terrbly wrong with a company named American whatever that makes all of its products in Mexico.

        Furthermore, Mexico is not as American as Canada - not by a long shot. The Canadian society is far different than that of Mexico. I can't imagine anyone even saying that. It's downright insulting and I'm not even a Canadian.

          Speak for yourself. When you say the word American, about 90% of the world thinks United States.

            Americans are neither Mexican or Canadian. If you don't think so just go to Mexico or Canada and try to get a job like the Mexicans do when they come here. In Canada they may spit you across the border. In Mexico they may put you in prison on bread and water until you die.

            America is the only country that treats illegal imigrants as if they are legal and give them more rights than the Americans have.

              They are mistaken.

              Drawing lines in the sand at this point in human history is totally pointless.

                    Well the latest on the news is they are shutting the doors to their largest plant here when the shut down begins at the auto plants in June. The local union guy said upwards of 600 people will be permanently out of jobs. And the per centage of American made parts in GM cars just went down again. So if GM builds their vehicles in other countries and then imports them in to the US. Are they still US cars. Like a lot of people are whining about American made products.

                    As to what you want to call the peoples of Mexico,Canada or the US. I personal don't care as there was nothing in my original post. Having anything to do with it what the peoples are called or racial statements.

                    Any racial connotations, were inferred by certain readers I guess. The point with the Government forcing Chrysler in to bankruptcy and a give away to Fiat. GM circling the toilet. the only US car or trucks will be Fords,Toyota's and Honda's for American made content in production.

                    The world as we have known it. is over!

                      When I hear a person with an "across the pond" accent with a slight scottish burr to it I am very careful to refer to them as "North American" until I can find out if its New England or Canada... Canadians get a little uptight about being treated as though they are part of the U.S...

                        Don't sweat it. BO The Anointed One will simple fire the CEO, force them to take some govt. cash then "restructure" the company by giving 60% of the company to the UAW with the remainder being held by the Fed and a token amount help in "private" hands.

                        The UAW better watch out though. It's going to be tough to keep up the management/worker class warfare Bullsh*t when they in fact are management.

                          Sometimes I just think of Canada as unfinished business from that spat we had back in 1812.

                            Who prophesize with your pen
                            And keep your eyes wide
                            The chance won't come again
                            And don't speak too soon
                            For the wheel's still in spin
                            And there's no tellin' who
                            That it's namin'.

                            Will be he who has stalled
                            There's a battle outside
                            And it is ragin'.
                            It'll soon shake your windows
                            And rattle your walls
                            For the times they are a-changin'.

                            Are beyond your command
                            Your old road is
                            Rapidly agin'.
                            Please get out of the new one
                            If you can't lend your hand
                            For the times they are a-changin'.

                            The line it is drawn
                            The curse it is cast
                            The slow one now
                            Will later be fast
                            As the present now
                            Will later be past
                            The order is
                            Rapidly fadin'.
                            And the first one now
                            Will later be last
                            For the times they are a-changin'.

                              I got a question-

                              What happened to the chinese company that was going to buy Ford's axle division?

                              I thought that Neapco, which is Wanxiang's US division, said they were going to actually build a NEW axle plant in Van Buren township, Mi.

                              Did that ever happen?

                              If it did, its kind of ironic that, while GM is moving jobs to Mexico, the Chinese are still making axles here in the good ol USA.
