What Ford dreamed of was not merely increased capacity but complete self-sufficiency. World War I, with its shortages and price increases, demonstrated for him the need to control raw materials; slow-moving suppliers convinced him that he should make his own parts. Wheels, tires, upholstery, and various accessories were purchased from other companies around Detroit. As Ford production increased, these smaller operations had to speed their output; most of them had to install their own assembly lines. It became impossible to coordinate production and shipment so that each product would arrive at the right place and at the right time.
“Totally transformed” is the slogan of this advertisement that represents their hard work. Most of the time, a car commercial seems to be not effective at all. Purchasing a car is a huge investment since no consumer is going to buy a car just because of a single advertisement.

Colton Greene Mr. Bates – 6 English Literature 12 12 February 2014 Senior Research Paper – Final Draft How Henry Ford Affected the Lives of the American People Imagine if Henry Ford did not invent the moving assembly line back in 1913. In that time, cars would not have been affordable and people would not have been able to get around as easily. If he did not make the first moving assembly line, most things today would not be as mass produced. Henry Ford directly impacted the lives of the people of his time by making cars more affordable and, without knowing, impacted the lives of many generations to come because the assembly line made it easier and faster to make products. To understand the impact of an assembly line one must first know what an assembly line is.

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. As a unionized company, the management at Ford will also benefit from UAW to keep its workers online to avoid low productivities. Another benefit of Ford Motors as unionized company is employees work satisfaction because of high wages, more fair practices, and guaranteed employments that leads to less company turnover. With the recent economic downturn many American businesses suffered losses, but with the help of the UAW Ford could overcome the economic barriers. In 2011 Ford and UAW agreed on a new contract approving profit sharing and signing bonuses in lieu of annual pay raises in setting the wages and benefits for 112,000 workers.
