Ford cutting jobs overseas

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Ford Motor Company said it will cut hundreds of jobs in its European operations to help cut costs on the continent.

Ford said the cuts in salaried positions will be voluntary and the company will also look to trim its budget by reducing expenses.

The changes come as Ford is facing a drop in demand for its products in Europe, where the economic crisis is making things difficult for many car makers.
