Ford Motor Co. reportedly will cut 250 workers from its Super Duty pickup truck plant in Louisville, KY. The cut comes as the auto maker drops the Louisville-built Excursion SUV from its lineup in '06. The company will try to place the affected workers in other jobs and potentially try to achieve some of the reduction through retirement, a spokesman tells the Associated Press.
