F-150 pickup trucks in Oakville, January 10, 2002. Reports say Ford is set
to announce it will close its F-series pickup truck plant as part of a plan
that will eliminate almost 10,000 jobs over two years and include a
writedown of $4 billion. The plant, with about 1,400 workers on a single
shift and 100 salaried workers, has long been targeted as one of the most
likely to be closed. REUTERS/Andrew Wallace
