Chrysler calls back 2nd shift at Belvidere, IL plant

BELVIDERE, IL (WKOW) -- The Chrysler plant in Belvidere, Illinois, near Rockford brought back the second shift Tuesday.

 About 1,000 people reported for work, and most of them are new hires since many of the plant workers took buyouts when the company scaled back.

 The jobs are temporary. The company is trying to pump out 10,000 Dodge Calibers by the end of the year.
