While eating my oatmeal this morning, I saw this Detroit Free Press story about Chrysler's intention to cut its salaried workforce by 25 percent at Christmas time.
Tom Walsh of the Free Press writes about the scary adjectives used by CEO Robert Nardelli. The top gun at the car company didn't paint a pretty picture of what's to come for the auto industry.
But, I wonder what practical effect slicing 25 percent from the salaried workforce will be on day-to-day operations. Are these workers being cut performing important roles right now? Who will pick up the slack? Will the "left behind" workers have to do more to keep the company running?
It might be a bad time to buy a Chrysler product.
