Detroiters More Responsible with Cash Bonuses
text size: A- A+
But all those who will get the bonus will spend each cent more carefully and not as in the past years when many of them purchased expensive products that were sometimes useless.
A report by the Detroit Free Press reveals that Detroiters aren't willing to buy boats, motorcycles or TVs, as they did in the past, but invest the money or pay their debts.
"I'm going to pump our economy back up as much as I can," Ford's Wayne Heath, 50-years-old, was quoted as saying by the aforementioned source. "Everybody I speak to is planning on home improvements, treats for themselves, for their families. Maybe some are putting (a) little bit of it away. There's not a lot of savings."
"My plan is to save it, put it toward retirement," Ann O'Connell, 58, of Wixom, added. "I know lots of people who would like to go spend, but people are cautious now, especially people my age."
But companies in the US have already started launching attractive offers, most of them aimed at the bonus cash the Detroit 3's workers will receive. "So, come on, autoworkers. The Big Three are comin' back strong and what a great time to own a new boat," one advertisement reads.
