The PBS documentary “I Worked for Mr. Ford” addresses the wage story.  Interestingly, a number of people who went to work for him are interviewed.  Competitors matched and exceeded his wage.  If there was an impact on AD, it was because of the entire sector.  I expect there is no clear answer to the question.

Does anyone have any recommendations on anything having to do with Ford paying his workers relatively well to incentivize demand? Asking for a student.

Thank you,
