Honda's Alabama plant makes cuts

Just because the "Big Three" automakers are struggling to survive doesn't mean foriegn-owned manufacturers are booming.

On Thursday Honda said it would cut production at several of it North American plants, including one located in Alabama.

Company Spokesman Ed Miller said the cuts are on top of others announced earlier this year, which will bring the automaker's total cuts since August to 50,000 units.

Miller said 12,000 of the cuts will be made at a plant in Alabama and 6,000 will be made in Ohio.

However, the company said it won't need to make work force changes as a result of the cuts.
