Chrysler cuts Mexico jobs

MEXICO CITY — Chrysler LLC says it will cut 300 of the 1,700 jobs at its light-truck assembly plant in Saltillo, Mexico, on Sept. 12. The plant builds the Dodge Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups, most of which are exported to the United States and Canada. A spokesman said the cuts are a result of weak demand in North America.
