    It’s good they’re hiring, but temp jobs for 15.50? C’mon guys we’re not idiots. If the Moco can afford to give the CEO a 10,000,000.00 dollar bonus I think it can afford to pay the workers who build the bikes enough that they could afford to buy one.

    I wonder how quality will be if you use temp workers. Think about it. You spend the time an money training these guys with no benefits working crap hours. You are going to have some crap bikes that roll out the line.

    When I worked for Boeing they never paid me enough to buy my own plane.
    So I quit!

    These motorcycles are too expensive. They should pay their employees more.

    15.50 may be for low end skills I would hope the more “experinced” workers would get more but who knows, that’s the way I read it, gotta keep the stock holders happy and the complete seperation of management to the common worker/product it produces,

    I thought they just LAID OFF?

    I agree with mkv. Not sure I’d trust buying a bike made by a temp worker making low wages. I’d look at all my options before buying one of these bikes. A lot of good alternatives now available from other mfrs.

    Well guess what??? I live in Wisconsin & McDonalds doesn’t pay $15.50 an hour here…more like $9…Also know for a fact forklift drivers DO NOT make $15.50 an hour starting anywhere else in the state & since I work in a machine shop….most machine shops don’t start new people at $15.50 or more UNLESS they have alot of experience……so yeah…$15.50 or more in Wisconsin is a descent job

    as for the worry about temp workers making “low” wages……well then all of you better stay away from Indians because guess what? Not only do they not use union workers…they have an in house staffing agency…..NONE of the employees are Polaris employees. They are all also technically temp employees for 2 years & then they get some benefits like being known as a full time employee & getting vacation days…….

    I think Brett says it all, I do know one company I worked for had milwaukee hands and they liked coming to Chicago to work for double the money, it’s all relevant, I didn’t want to mention the private union aspects cause people get their panties in a bunch thinking it’s costing them money instead of it beneficial to the workers and the economy

    I think Brett is missing the point. The day we accept someone making 20 million dollars a year, or 9615.38 per hour, telling us we should be grateful and accept 15.50 as a “good job” is the day we become indentured servants. Which for the most part we already are. I say F that. If the company is so profitable that the CEO gets 10,000 dollars an hour then the workers who build the product should get at least 100. Conversely, if the company can only afford to pay the workers 15.50, then the CEO should not be getting more than 1550.00 per hour. Which is 3.25 million a year still. I don’t understand why 3.25 million a year isn’t enough for a CEO but 30k a year is supposed to be more than enough for everyone else.

    That is lower than our minimum wage.. America a failed democracy

  15. 15 Biggles Dec 2nd, 2017 at 8:11 am

    So they lay off a bunch of full time workers then rehire temp staff for less money. Nice one HD

    I am a union worker making $31.00 an hour / medical / paid vacation … not that much by todays costs … Our contract allows for 4 summer help ( cheap ) every season … What a great way (usually) to shop for people to bring on full time who will pull their weight … I did it …
    Union or not … Earn your way …

    Corporate greed! Moco permanently laid off workers and are now hiring temps so as to not have to pay benefits to people who assemble the foreign made parts.

  18. 18 george barnard Dec 2nd, 2017 at 9:16 am

    I`m with Bob S on this one. My memory ain`t that good but I seem to remember the MOCO hiring someone to find ways to save money and when the “consultant” was done The workers had lost and they paid him what the workers lost. The MOCO wasn`t after saving,it was after punishment on the Union.

    Loving doing what you do $15.50 is a bargain

  20. 20 Doug Dec 3rd, 2017 at 6:15 pm

    It says potential overtime wages could be 15.50$

  21. 21 Mdkuder Dec 4th, 2017 at 11:00 am

    Wow I should quit and move to Milwaukee! That’s janitor pay right?

  22. 22 Hobo tom Dec 4th, 2017 at 1:13 pm

    Really the bikes actually start and work?
    I guess that is why the bikes come in a crate and the dealer finishes the assembly.
    Hell I can’t get CNC guys for $60,000 a year . HD can get one for $15 bucks an hour.
