Hope Amidst Oblivion

From Louisville Courier-Journal:

Ford Motor’s head of North American manufacturing told a Louisville conference today that the automaker is committed to fostering manufacturing innovation in the United States. Speaking at the Global Automotive Conference in Louisville, Joe Hinrichs was asked what role Ford’s Louisville plants would have in that vision.

"I know the plant well and I’m sure this plant will step up to whatever we have to do," he said, referring to the Explorer plant on Fern Valley Road Concern about the future of the Louisville Assembly Plant stems from lower sales of the Explorer and Ford’s plans to close seven assembly plants by 2009.

It has identified five.

The plant will step up? Kentucky hopes. Given only Fordfare, hollow assurances, and temporary employment, the workers are starving. Either they will succeed or Ford will perish.
