Slashing Another 8,000 Jobs

Aug 1, 2022

According to the Detroit Free Press, Ford is getting ready to eliminate up to 8,000 more salaried jobs in the coming weeks in their push to switch from gasoline powered to electric vehicles. They’re continuing to get rid of the people who have worked on the gasoline engines, instead of retraining them.

This announcement “comes on the heels of Michigan giving the automaker a $100 million tax-fund incentive package in June as part of a plan to create new jobs in the state.”

So is the state going to withdraw that incentive since Ford is getting rid of jobs?!
