Default The big 3

Was just curious if anyone knows what a assembler makes per hour at any of the big 3 auto makers. Was just wanting to compare with John Deere assemblers.

I would say way too much judging by the price of new vehicles. And they are probably worth half of what they get paid but you know itís a union job . And the Union has been driving up the price of the American product for far too long.

The real big three are Volkswagen, Toyota, Daimler.

Buy foreign, maybe they will stop inviting America.

I believe the new starting wage after the CBA during the recession, creating a lower pay tier, is around $14-15/hour.

The $32.50 per hour for full time workers sounds about right, that comes out to app 68k a year plus benefits.
I live in a small PA town of about 7,000, the police chief makes over 70k a year, and in NYC garbage collectors make over 100k a year, IMO, 68k a year certainly isn't out of line in todays world!

Looks like they changed it with the 2019 contract, but it was something like $14.35 for starting wage before that from the previous CBA signed during the recession and auto restructuring. Like mentioned, $68k is pretty much just a descent wage these days and nothing out of line or extraordinary. I make just under $34/hr as an R/D chemist and coordinator and certainly not living the high life!! lol

Before Covid: Ads on tv every fall, $8 -$10k off sticker price new pickups. After Covid: $1k " market adustment" on top of sticker price.
I think chip shortage has more to do with vehicle price than assembler wages.

No way. Look at how the United Boat Workers has jacked up prices of Lund, Ranger, Alumacraft etc. And beef prices going through the roof since the International Bovine Association got rolling. Those darn unions ruin everything. I hear two pigs named Napoleon and Snowball are starting some serious trouble, too.
