Today at work (Cleveland Alluminum Casting Plant) Ford told us that our alluminum plant would be phased out by the end of next year. We make the 2.3L Alluminum block, and it cost to much for us to manufacture it. They will instead, buy it from Nemac New Mexico from people who will make it for a lot less money. Big buisiness in our great country is all about the almighty dollar. The rich get richer. People buying these damn imported cars sure don't help us either, 90% of the cost for these ricers go out of the country. I'm upset right now, I really like my job at the alluminum plant. Oh well, I guess I'll go help build the 3L Duratec now. I know thats a good one. Thanks for letting me cry on your shoulders, but mosty thanks everyone for buying a Ford!! By the way, the Focus is selling all around the globe, the F series pickups are the best selling pickups in the world, and the Mustang....what can I say.
