Chrysler to close Kenosha engine plant

by

KENOSHA, Wis (WSAU) Chrysler makes its plans to close an engine plant in Kenosha official. That will cost the region about 575 jobs.

Chrysler had actually said for more than a year that it would shut the plant down at the end of 2010. The closing date will be on or near October 8th.

Another plant in Ohio is being closed. A Chrysler spokesperson says workers at the two plants will be offered jobs in another plant in the Detroit area. When the plant-closing decisions first became public last year it triggered anger against the carmaker -- in part, because it was accepting bailout funds from the federal government at the same time.
