U.S. Automakers Cut Nearly 100,000 Jobs; Chrysler 13k, Ford 45k, GM 32k

In the latest round of job cuts to be announced from a U.S. auto manufacturer, Chrysler announced today that it is cutting about 13,000 jobs in North America.

Add that to the 45,000 job cuts planned by Ford, and another 32,000 planned by GM, and you have a cool 90,000 jobs that have simply vanished.

Chicken Smith View:

This time it’s not outsourcing, rather the decline of an industry that was started and revolutionized right here in the United States. And no, Toyota & Honda will not be able to pick up the slack and hire 90,000 unemployed workers.

Add that to the continuing decline in manufacturing jobs, the outsourcing of high tech jobs, and the loss of jobs in general, and you have another fine ingredient in the boiling pot that is our bubble economy.
