Mercedes Temporary Shutdown

The company announced the production slow down to employees
during a meeting Wednesday night.

The 4,000-employee plant will close two days this month and for two weeks in January.

Company spokeswoman Felyicia Jerald said some employees will
work on non-production days, but she declined to say how many.

The $1 billion plant offered buyouts in October.

It also extended the usual one-week summer shutdown to four weeks this year.
