  •  Jeep Jobs may not be TOTALLY safe... (0+ / 0-)

    Romney has no clue how to keep jobs in America (although he does know a little something about shipping them...), but that DOES NOT mean that by default the Jeep jobs in the US are completely safe. BusinessWeek is reporting that FIAT is indeed planning on moving Jeep production to some of it's plants in Italy that are below full capacity. They specifically say that these Jeeps will be produced in Italy and exported to the US.

    This might not mean that Jeep will lay off any workers in the US - it may want to just use the plants in Italy to increase overall production for the North American markets, but it just as likely means that some Jeep jobs will be lost in the US and will be replaced by the plants in Italy.
