USA Small Car Production Moves to Mexico
Ford Motor will shift all of its U.S. small car production to Mexico. Ford's declaration came as CEO Mark Fields sought to appeal to investors.
Fields said, over the next two to three years, we will have migrated all of our small car production to Mexico and out of the United States.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said, we shouldn't allow it to happen. They'll make their cars, they'll employ thousands of people not from this country, and they'll sell their car across the border. He also said, when we send our jobs out of Michigan, we're also sending our tax base.
Ford has said it continues to invest heavily in its U.S. plants and isn't cutting jobs here. Last fall, the automaker made a commitment to invest $9 billion in U.S. plants, about half of which would go to 11 facilities in Michigan. Here's more from the Detroit Free Press.
