Comment: I have read that the Ford move was a PR exercise.

(See in situ)


I have read that the Ford move was a PR exercise.

The overall effect was that his employees on a lower wage scale received more but other employees had their wages reduced and many were fired. I do not recall all the details but the impression I have is that it was a cynical exercise to garner public support for his sales efforts.

If this is true then the article you linked to has bought the PR story and is furthering the myth. It is absolutely vital to know that the people in charge of big corporations do not think in this way. They are entirely self centred and brutally ruthless. Everything else is PR including this article in the OP.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
