St. Paul Ford plant to close in September 2009
A new closing date has been set for the Ford plant in St. Paul, despite strong sales for its main product.
The United Auto Workers now say the plant will close in September of 2009, leaving a good number of employees from western Wisconsin out of work.
Ford itself had another tough month in February. But sales of the Ranger pick-up - which is made in St. Paul - rose by 27 percent from a year ago.
