Ford Motor Co. Mexico S.A. de C.V will cut 600 jobs at its Hermosillo plant in northern Mexico due to decreased U.S. demand for the Escort. Workers will be offered voluntary severance packages, but if not enough of them accept the packages, Ford says the plant’s most recent hires will be cut. Hermosillo employs 2,400 unionized workers and also makes the Focus. Ford said in January it will eliminate the Escort by mid-decade as part of its restructuring plan.
