Motivational Power Quote
Henry Ford Paved The Way
“It is better to sell a large number of cars at a reasonably
small margin than to sell fewer at a large margin of profit . . .
It enables a large number of people to buy and enjoy (the car)
and give a large number to men employment at a good wage.
Those are two aims I have in life.”
Henry Ford 1863 -1947, Founder of Ford Motor Company
As I see it . . . . . . .
Henry Ford paved the way
Henry Ford was an innovator and created the first affordable automobile in American, a car the people could afford to own.
But he also did something else that was very interesting that has slipped into the pages of history.
He felt that the work force in his automobile plant should be able to afford to own the cars they where building.
At the time the wages for an auto worker would not be enough for them to own a car.
Henry Ford changed the standards for the wages for the auto workers and the work force at Ford Motor Company became the highest paid in workers in the industry.
Henry ford paved the way for Americans to afford to own a Ford and the Ford work force to own a car that they were building. Henry Ford was a good businessman and the outcome was a win – win situation for car buyers, his work force and his business.
