CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

20,000 people protested the closing of a Ford factory in Belgium Sunday after the company announced the closing of one of its main European factories by the end of 2014.

4,500 ford employees will lose their jobs as well as another 5,000 subcontractors.

Ford says the slump in European sales is forcing them to restructure.
