Trudeau Economy: Fiat Chrysler To Cut 1,500 Jobs In Windsor

With the impending carbon tax and declining business confidence due to failed federal policies, Canada’s economy is suffering.

Days before the federal carbon tax takes effect, Fiat Chrysler has announced that they are cutting the third shift at the Windsor plant.

That will result in the loss of 1,500 jobs.

In a statement, the company said “better align production with global demand.” 

Of course, companies almost never blame government policy to avoid causing political complications, but it can’t be denied that the carbon tax is devastating for the economic prospects of Canada and is pushing investment away.

A union president representing the workers said the announcement was a shock:

“I was shocked and disappointed that FCA has announced today the elimination of the third shift. We will continue to meet with the company on alternatives of new products. We will need the support of all levels of government as we move forward.”

While the energy industry and auto sector continues to be devastated by the failed economic policies of the Trudeau Liberals, Trudeau and his elitist cronies are pulling out all the stops for the executives at SNC-Lavalin, showing that in the mind of Trudeau, some parts of Canada clearly matter more than others.

Unfortunately, we can expect the economy to keep getting worse and worse.

Probably making them in a hardcore slave worker country, with no pollution laws, no labour laws, no pensions etc.. Then they pollute more by shipping them all over the world, ta da, they still charge the consumer the same amount and the elite make more money per vehicle in this case, and less and less people can afford a vehicle, accept the still well off people, you know like government people and company hierarchy, fewer jobs less pay left in Canada. Our one world lieberal elites make laws to help their bosses, and we pay them and will have no… Read more »

So Nancy, why the hardcore conspiracy lunacy? Did you even read the article? Or are you just trying to defend the incompetent prime minister?

While F/C closes a shift at Windsor,they are expanding a plant in Michigan to the tune of $4.5 billion. They are going to build cars,just not in Canada. Big part of the problem with Canada is huge powerful Unions such as Unifor who drive the costs of labor through the roof.

The economy was overdue for a recession regardless of who was in power. Perhaps another Harper bailout would help? I’im not for any party or leader, I’m for facts, real facts, not made up and spun figures a la Dougie or Donald. What’s really sad is our lack of options, and let’s do this without bias please. We have just in who while he hasn’t put forward necessarily terrible ideas, has shot himself in the foot numerous times and lost my vote when he didn’t follow through with his promised electoral or Senate reforms. Then Mr. Scheer, who is just… Read more »

Why is the Union president so shocked? My guess is that the union bosses are going to miss out on all the dues they get from the workers who worked for and whose salaries are paid by FIAT CHYSLER not by the union. Besides, the unions endorsed Justin Trudeau in 2015 and look what’s happening. FIAT CHRYSLER IS A PRIVATE COOPERATION and since economy is declining with no end in sight, businesses can’t function especially with Trudeau’s high taxes Why don’t the big union bosses create jobs for the people and give the same high salaries which they demanded from… Read more »
