Ford Motor Company has begun a new round of job cuts.
The automaker plans to lay off 7,000 white-collar workers globally by August to "prepare for a fast-changing future."
The company said Monday that the plan will save about $600 million per year by eliminating bureaucracy and increasing the number of workers reporting to each manager. The cut amounts to 10 percent of Ford's global salaried workforce.
