toyota vs GM wage

Looks like Toyota assy is a high pay and pork full, They just don't have the legacy costs yet. When they do, poof they be gone. $25 to start for putting rear view mirrors. If you look at the you tube vidis you'll see toyota work is a lot easier and much more automated with fewer workers. Very easy work for high dollar non union work. Wheres the outrage. :)
"The starting vacation when you hit "full time" employment is 20 days. Not bad. But on top of your 20 days you get all the stat holidays plus 9 holidays that the company pays for, plus a 1 week shutdown over the summer, plus a 1.5 week shutdown at Christmas. Bonuses are 2 times a year depending on attendance and performance can equate to about 4% of your wage. The starting salary I think everyone who has applied is well aware it's about 55K"
"I've heard from some who have been hired within the past six months that the starting wage for a production team member is $25/hour, and that with each three month contract signed the wage goes up a bit. I heard that new hires sign three of the three month contracts and then are hired permanently (if all goes well) at a wage of $30-35/hour, but I'm not sure. If you check out the Top 100 Employers for Canada 2008 you will see that TMMC has made it on the list and it describes many of the benefits that are offered to employees."

The woman across the steet from me works at the Toyota plant in San Antonio where they build Tundras. She installs either an exhaust manifold or power steering hose. They train for at least two tasks and alternate every few hours--I forget the exact time. I also don't remember exactly what she said the starting wage was, but it wasnt $25/hr. It is more like $15-18. They do have fairly decent benefits. Health insurance for dependants-- her husband and daughter- costs something like $150/ month. When the plant was hiring it was estimated that they would have at least 10 applicants for every job. (about 2000 jobs total). The pay and benefits are decent, working conditions ok etc, but they expect an honest day's work for a day's wages. They will not tolerate habitual tardiness, absences, coming in hungover etc, etc. that is the norm for some UAW workers. Frankly, that type of work would bore me to death, and I'd rather do something less monotonous for less money, but that's just me. Larry

Yeah I feel the same way and the monotony world make me drink more.
Wages vary around the country. Maybe Tx has a lower base rate then other areas?
