FacilitiesChrysler Group to Cut 10,000 Jobs Today - Will Jeep Plants be Affected?
Posted by mike on 2007/2/14 7:35:12 (2906) reads

Chrysler Group is set to cut approximately 10,000 jobs hourly workers today as part of their overall restructuring plan. At this time, it is unknown if workers at any of the Jeep plants will be affected. From

Much of the downsizing, analysts believe, will come at plants that make truck-based products, victims of the change in consumer tastes from sport utility vehicles and trucks to more fuel efficient car-based vehicles.

Atop almost all of the analysts' lists of plants likely to be closed is the 2,100-worker factory in Newark, Del., that assembles the slow-selling Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen midsize SUVs.

Analysts say the Mack Avenue Engine Plant 1 in Detroit, with about 530 employees, also is a possibility because it makes the 4.7-liter V-8 engines that go in slow-selling trucks. And a 2,330-worker plant near St. Louis that makes Ram pickups also is on many lists because Chrysler has two other plants that make the Ram. Shifts also could be cut at other plants.

If the big 3 keeps cutting jobs and outsourcing them I won’t have a reason to “Buy American” any more. It seems to me that they are alienating their biggest customers by “cutting costs” so that the fat cats at their company can make even more money. Because I would bet that each of the top management is still making more money in one day than most of the workers (who’s jobs were cut) make in one year.

Well you are right to point your finger at the big three. If they would make cars that people actually want to buy they wouldn't have a problem.

Toyota and Nissan keep opening plants in the US while the big three closes them. I live in the Detroit area and I make my living off of the auto industry hauling parts and it is sad that my job has nothing to do with Detroit/Michigan economy or the big three.

But all they have to blame is themselves.
