Thread regarding Ford layoffs

Chip shortage is not a problem at Ford.

The chip shortage will have minimal impact to Ford due upfront planning and staying nimble in the face of uncertainty. Our CEO, Jim Farley, has instituted several measure to ensure Ford is among the leaders in responding to this crisis. He has been so personally involved with the supply
chain flexibility planning that we call it "Farley Flexing". This means having multiple supply chain flexibilities in place and be ready to pivot to alternative sources on very short notice.

"Farley Flexing" actually refers to the practice of Jim taking his big boy classic car to a road race and calling his BFF Phoebe Wall Howard for some free publicity.
