On Monday, May 18th, workers and community members will picket outside of the Chrysler Engine Plant in Kenosha, urging the company to reconsider its restructuring plan.
As things stand, the Kenosha Engine Plant is scheduled to close, eliminating 800 Wisconsin jobs. Meanwhile, Chrysler is planning to build and expand facilities in Mexico. This is a betrayal of billions of dollars that United States taxpayers have invested to keep Chrysler in business.
