Fox4: Thousands of Claycomo workers will be off for one week while Ford temporarily shuts down production of the popular F-150 pickup truck.
The F-150 pickup truck has been Ford's best-seller for decades, but recently sales have decreased. The shut downs in Claycomo and three other plants are a way for the auto maker to deal with demand. The F-150 is Ford's money-maker and makes up 90 percent of its profit during the second quarter.
With the shut down, as many as 13,000 hourly workers will be laid off at all four plants. 9,000 are U.S. workers while the rest are workers in Mexico . . .
