DCX Planning More Job Cuts in Germany?

While the wily-and-vaguely-nuts Herr Pi ch has brought in a labor man to negotiate salary and labor practices over at VW, word outta Stuttgart is that between 6,000 and 7,500 jobs will be cut at DaimlerChrysler in Germany over the next two years, on top of the 8,500 they announced plans to dump back in September. The company has refused comment on the matter, although company spokeswoman Marina Raptis says, "We are of course adhering to our employment pact without exception." Is this a last ditch effort by Schrempp to look like he was actually trying before Dieter takes over?
