White-collar workers at Ford not only won't get pay raises next year.
They'll also pay more for health insurance under.
In addition, Ford will stop providing health insurance for Medicare-eligible salaried retirees over 65 starting in January 2008.
The automaker will give each retiree $1800 that can be used to buy supplemental medical coverage.
The changes in benefits aren't limited to cuts. Ford is restoring a company match to its 401K plan, paying 60 cents on the dollar up to five percent of an employee's base salary.
The company lost seven and-a-quarter billion dollars in the first nine months of 2006.
