Topics regarding layoffs at Ford

Why is Ford's lineup so dated looking?

For example, the Fusion looks pretty much the same as it did back in 2012, which was during Obama's first term in office by the way. What's going on? How can we be expected to compete with such dated looking vehicles? Thoughts?

This should be all over the media!

It is still shameful that Ford salaried retirees are singled out to be tasked with higher costs. Retirees are on fixed incomes and did not expect this. Certainly they should not bear the burden alone. I hope the press catches wind of this .. —  read more
