Ford To Eliminate 1,400 White Collar Jobs In North America and Asia

Ford To Eliminate 1,400 White Collar Jobs In North America and Asia | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
The carmaker is coping with a sales slowdown even as it invests aggressively in new technologies like self-driving cars, electrified vehicles and ride-sharing models.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
There has to be a slowing of automotive industry, people are buying fewer cars and keeping them longer. At least Ford realizes that the place to cut is in the office and not among those who do things and to cut back in the areas where their marketing is not working, like India and China. Still, no American with a sense of economics in the 20th century can see this iconic automotive firm, and perhaps the one that has over that century been the most consistent, cut back without a sense of foreboding.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

Since one of the biggest problems for vets is expalining how their military experience and training translate into the needs of civilian companies, perhaps the VA and DOD can start working at providing such translations. Seems like a simple-minded way to help our vets get employment.

The surprising truth about American manufacturing

The surprising truth about American manufacturing | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Donald Trump is doubling down on his assertions that free trade is destroying US manufacturing. But data show manufacturing is strong – and getting better. Part 2 of a five-part series: Free Trade in America.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
Did you know that American manufacturing is growing, that products are flowing off assembly lines? Yep. Of course there are fewer workers, but the jobs are there, in fact more jobs than workers. The problem is that with fewer workers on the lines, we have to rethink how our society employs people.
