so much behind the scenes stuff that goes on for even the simplest product. Market research, design, testing, supplier management, project management, etc. Then you add in all the levels of management, HR, Accounting, payroll, etc you have more behind the scenes jobs as the assembly plants. Those jobs are higher skill and in the US higher pay, but not in the other countries. When all of those jobs are outside the US and the corporate headquarters is outside the US they save so much they can afford to overpay the assembly line workers. So many people are blind to the rest of the world and believe the "made in the US" marketing from those brands without knowing how small a part of "made" there really is.

Where in the did that guy ever get the idea that the Japanese manufactures assembling some of their cars in the US with mostly foreign parts, were paying anything near the wages, benefits and pensions offered in UAW represented plants? LOL
