Chrysler Job Cuts

Chrysler announced today that it's cutting 11,000 jobs and dropping the PT Cruiser, the Chrysler Pacifica, a crossover vehicle dissed for being too big and too pricey for family buyers, and the Dodge Magnum, which looks a bit like a stylish hearse. It's not a direct blow to Flint, but it's not good news for Michigan.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
