This process significantly reduced assembly time per vehicle which in turn lowered costs. One more great contribution that Henry Ford gave to people was with the opening of his new manufacturing plant, there would be many jobs that would need to be filled and he createde those jobs. The number of men on payroll at his largest plant was 81,000 employees (Ford Museum). The demand for more cars gave these 81,000 people a decent job and a decent wage of 5 dollars a day (Wiley, John). Overall, it is easy to say that Henry Ford really gave back to society
(The automobile industry, 1920-1980) This was very big not only for the new invention of the first production car but it also offered many new jobs for factory workers needed to produce the mass number of cars that were in high demand. After Henry Ford realized he needed to make these cars faster and more efficiently due to increasing demand, he made the first assembly line for workers, this allowed production to move much faster and more efficiently. With an assembly line each worker does one simple job on every product that comes down the line, over and over. By the time the product is at the end of the assembly line and everyone has done his or her part, the car is completely assembled! As with most things, as soon as others saw the success that Henry Ford was experiencing, they set out to copy him and make their own versions of his original product.
When he started his Ford Motor company he was always looking out for his customers and his employees. When he realized that too much time was being spent trying to create one car at a time, he came up with the idea of using the assembly line method or mass production. By using this method it greatly cut the cost of production per vehicle so instead of keeping prices high, it actually lowered them. He also raised the pay of his workers. He is one of the big reasons that the United States has a middle working class because of his great generosity for his workers.
Key History Henry Ford, with his passion and vision for the automobile industry in 1903 founded Ford Motor Company. Ford is based out of Dearborn, Michigan and first started off in 1899 as Detroit Automobile Company, which unfortunately quickly failed. This failure did not discourage Ford, shortly after the failure of Detroit Automobile, Ford founded the Ford Motor Company on June 16th, 1903 which was and to this day is also based in Dearborn Michigan. Henry Ford in 1908 then introduced to the world the Model T. The Model T was a success due to the affordable price, consistency, and efficient production. This allowed for Ford to sell over 15 million vehicles and make them a major part of the automobile market share.
Rob Johnson, IMF executive director said, "Telling the whole story about unionization is important and if more companies put as much effort into working with unions in a proactive way rather than spending millions on preventing unionization the results would be evident." (Fortune, 2012, p. 1). As part of the Automaker's union, Ford Motors family has grown extensively in the last several decades. The employees at Ford, as unionized workers with the UAW, successfully have developed Ford into one of the largest manufacturers in the United States. Fords benefits from unionization because the union contracts can be negotiated and any work issues can be resolved, such as workplace safety, wages, and benefits.
Out of this Furnace, by Thomas Bell, is a rich portrait of five generations of a family of Hungarian immigrants who came to America during the late nineteenth century. George Kracha settled in Pennsylvania in 1881 as a worker in a steel mill - at ten cents an hour. George truly was full of the hope and promise that America's freedom and riches represented to immigrants from around the world. Less than fifty years later, John Dobrejcak, his grandson, is the main force behind uniting his co-workers into a group of organized laborers. Along the way, the meaning of being "American" changes significantly for John, who realizes he is more a product of the steel furnaces of Pennsylvania than of anything American.
Alan Mulally, the current CEO of Ford Motor Company, came into the company with a new direction. With a selling leadership style Mulally won over the willingness of Fords followers. Mulally builds confidence of followers by providing clear direction and encouraging two way communication. After looking at the product lineup Mulally said, “Where’s the Taurus?”After learning the Taurus was renamed the Five Hundred Mulally said, “Well, you’ve got until tomorrow to find a vehicle to put the Taurus name on because that’s why I’m here. Then you have two years to make the coolest vehicle that you can possibly make.” (Hellriegel & Slocum 2011 p. 544).
ECON545: Project 2—Macroeconomic Analysis By Shawn M. Gilliam Professor Peterson 4/17/15 Looking at the decision of Melanin Car Manufacturing Company expanding their operations to meet the increasing demand from car manufacturers to produces parts for the auto industry.

Reasons for the economic boom in the 1920s America experienced an economic boom after World War 1 ended because of many different factors. There was a rapid increase in industry and this caused many more people, including women to become employed and to earn their own money. Many new industries were created in the 1920s; one of the rapidly increasing industries was the car industry. Henry Ford revolutionised the production of cars by creating mass production. This meant that people had one specific job on the production line that they repeated over and over so they became very good at this one job, this meant that the T-ford model could be produced every 10 seconds.
