Fiat Chrysler is laying 1,300 employees off from its Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, the place where the struggling Chrysler 200 sedan is built, according to Automotive News. The 200 was supposed to represent the once-struggling company’s “triumphant” return to the highly important midsize sedan segment, but this…
