Nice! Out at the Rouge I have to wear a hardhat, saftey glasses, gas monitor, and fire resistant "greens" even if I am walking through the parking lot to my Jeep.
I was actually bitched out by the safety guy.

Here is a video of a stamping press in China. Apparently this video was going around Chrysler and my dad forwarded it to me. Be sure to duck and move quickly. :miff:

These things help to keep retirement costs down.

I do believe that some of the "ghey" requirements in America hurt us as well. What Rob the plumber said is a good examle. Also, no-one talks about the other countrys enviromental impact.
