Tennessee automaker plant announces hundreds of job cuts
Hundreds of jobs are being eliminated at a Tennessee assembly plant.
Chattanooga's Volkswagen plant announced it is dropping the third assembly shift, getting rid of 500 temporary jobs.
The company's spokesman says strong domestic demand led to the third shift workforce addition, but an increase in efficiency has decreased the need for the added shift.
Volkswagen says the change takes effect May 13th.
