Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (MI-13) released the following statement after reports that Ford will cut 10 percent of its workforce:

“I join my fellow Detroiters in their concerns regarding reports that Ford may be cutting its worldwide workforce by up to 10 percent.  While I understand that certain shareholders are pushing the company to cut costs—it is important that Ford prioritize American jobs and the communities that support them.  Ford is one of America’s most enduring companies. As an American icon, they have a responsibility to minimize layoffs of American workers.  I encourage them to let myself as well as the rest of the Michigan delegation know how we can help protect our constituents’ jobs.”
