A Massive Company is Now Laying Off 400 Salaried Workers

A massive company is now laying off 400 salaried workers due to ‘unprecedented uncertainties’, as it seeks to cut costs.

Chrysler parent Stellantis is laying off roughly 400 U.S. salaried employees in its engineering, technology and software organizations to cut costs, reports CNBC.

The automaker on Friday said the layoffs would affect about 2% of employees in those units “after rigorous organizational reviews.”

The layoffs occurred during a “mandatory remote work day” for U.S. salaried, nonunion employees in its engineering and technology organization.

Stellantis employed 11,800 U.S. salaried employees as of the end of last year.

The cuts are effective March 31.

“As the auto industry continues to face unprecedented uncertainties and heightened competitive pressures around the world, Stellantis continues to make the appropriate structural decisions across the enterprise to improve efficiency and optimize our cost structure,” the company said in an emailed statement.

A spokeswoman for the automaker declined to discuss the exact number of employees who are being laid off.

A source familiar with the actions confirmed it at about 400 workers, a number first reported Friday by The Wall Street Journal.

The action is the latest by Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares to cut costs through layoffs, buyouts and other methods since the company was established through a merger of Fiat Chrysler and French automaker PSA Groupe in 2021.

The cuts are part of a push to achieve Stellantis’ “Dare Forward 2030” strategic plan that aims to increase profits and double the automaker’s revenue to 300 billion euros, or $335 billion, by then, among other targets.

“While we understand this is difficult news, these actions will better align resources while preserving the critical skills needed to protect our competitive advantage as we remain laser focused on implementing our EV product offensive and our Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan,” the company said.

A massive discount retailer is now closing 600 stores by the end of the year due to the fast pace of rising inflation, sources confirm.

Shopping giant Family Dollar is set to close 600 of their US stores by the end of the year.

The heartbreaking news comes as a shock to the millions who use America’s second largest variety retailer, reports The US Sun.

Despite being a great place for families to shop, the company has come under pressure due to rising levels of inflation.

It is being reported the rise weakened the buying power of the retailer’s customer base.

This has caused buyers to look elsewhere for the best deals possible so they can cut costs, according to CBS News.

Stores across the US are claiming shoplifting is also on the rise, causing serious issues in the industry.

A press release by the companies Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Rick Dreiling detailed the closure.

It said they were “making decisive action to improve profitability and unlock value at Family Dollar”.

The company’s quarterly revenue failed to meet Wall Street expectations at $8.46 billion compared to the estimated $8.66 billion.

Dollar Tree reported a profit of $452.5 million last year, it has now reported a net loss of $1.71 billion in the fourth quarter with market shares dropping 8% after the results of its fourth quarter.

Dollar Tree has announced that 600 of its Family Dollar stores will close for good this year.

An additional 370 spots will be shut down over the next few years when the leases expire on the stores.

This will also lead to 30 Dollar Trees closing.

In total a staggering 15 per cent of all Dollar Tree storefronts are going for good.

The full list of Family Dollar stores closing down hasn’t been formally announced yet but CBS has compiled a partial list of those already named.

These include over 20 in Mississippi and multiple in Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, Virginia and Missouri.

Dollar Tree said they opened up 641 new stores in the last financial year however.

The beloved chain has been under Dollar Tree’s ownership since 2015.

It was reportedly acquired for a whopping $8.5billion.

Dollar Tree has begun raising prices across their stores to try and make up for the drastic losses.

There are currently over 8,000 Family Dollar locations across the US.

The brand’s main rivals include Dollar General and Walmart.
