The King aint got nothin' over FoMoCo according to Saturday's Detroit News. It seems the Dearborn-based automaker is having morale issues with its tie-and-coat wearing employees. It looks as though its due to the company playing a kind of game of Survivor with employee benefits, distributing a survey to white-collars asking questions like:
What would you rather have, a pension plan or retiree health care?
If you had to choose, would you pick dental or disability insurance?
What's better, a higher base salary or a performance bonus?
Not known was whether the survey asked questions like:
Who would ya bang? Taylor Hicks or Kelly Clarkson?
Should the promo for the new Ford Fairlane be giveaways of the Andrew Dice Clay flick, "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane?"
It's clear from the questions we do know that this type of a survey will do nothing but get folks thinking about the worst-case scenario...or maybe that is the idea...trying to get the dead wood to jump off the ship, eh? You're friggin' brilliant Fields! Nobody's thought of that before.
