Thread regarding Ford layoffs

Ford Europe Cuts - Electrification

Ford Motor Co. promised Thursday to stem the bleeding of its overseas operation with 12,000 confirmed job cuts, factory closures and a business redesigned “for profitability, efficiency” with more electric vehicles in Europe, according to a news release issued from Germany.

Overall, approximately 12,000 jobs will be impacted at Ford’s wholly owned facilities and consolidated joint ventures in Europe by the end of 2020, primarily through voluntary separation programs, the company confirmed Thursday. Around 2,000 of those are salaried positions, which are included among the 7,000 salaried positions Ford is reducing globally.

“Our future is rooted in electrification,” said in a prepared statement.

Who posts comments like the one about "your mom"? I can't believe it's a current or prior Ford employee because all the people I met at Ford have more class than that.

Anyone actually view or see the new electric vehicle? I heard a rumor that its boxy, like the K-car?

Sorry for European brethren. I hope mostly voluntary separations. Too bad they didn’t offer voluntary separations in NA this year. They would of had a much better outcome if they had.

NA actions Very short sighted. Not only bad because of poor morale, and uniformed decision making. It is also bad for vehicle sales.

Something Ford leaders never realize is that the person flapping their gums about how much power and influence they have, are not the ones with true influence. Funny isn’t it, just like the person who looks like he has money, has none.

How will the truly powerful use that power to influence buying decisions, finance decisions, regulatory decisions in the future when they are abruptly released? Ford regretfully has cut off its nose.
