Labor cost of a new car

leave a comment »

The average price of a new 2009 car is $27,958, and the average man hours it takes to make one is about 34 hours
or $2200. based on information from The Auto Channel, (2009) and The Harbour Report™ North America (2009).

Why does everyone report that the UAW is greedy when they only recieve about 2k to manufacture a new car selling for 28k?

General Motors Corp (GM.N) Chief Executive Rick Wagoner’s salary and other compensation rose 64 percent in 2007 to about $15.7 million.

One CEO recieves compensation that exceeds the labor cost for well over 7600 cars. That represents over 124 YEARS of labor costs.
Now think about it.
