Ford cuts 450 more Australian jobs

Ford`s office in Melbourne, Australia, announced that it will cut 450 jobs, the reason being weak sales and global economic crush. The reductions announcement, which will be taking place by the year`s end, bring the sum to around 1,400 job losses for Ford Australia in the past 15 months.

The cuts affect the office staff and Ford manufacturing, it will be offered some buyouts like the numerous Ford cuts in North America on these last few years.

There are lots of rumors that the North American operations at Ford would pull development and research, plus, potentially, the products from the Australian outfit. The firm has some products there that are quite unique in Australia plus other markets as well.
