Toyota lays off 200 temp workers at Tundra plant

Here's an article i found:

Toyota lays off 200 temp workers at Tundra plant


The full-size pickup truck woes continue to worsen, leaving even mighty Toyota little choice but to slow production of its Tundra model. In fact, Toyota's brand new plant in San Antonio that was built just for the Tundra will be shutting down a total of 14 days between now and October. Full-time workers at the plant will be able to use vacation days, take the time off unpaid or find something else at the plant to do while the assembly line is halted.

Unfortunately, temp-to-hire workers aren't so lucky. Two-hundred employees who were hoping to land full-time positions at the plant will be laid off this summer. Toyota spokesman Mike Goss says, "We have a very long-term view of that factory in Texas. We're trying not to overreact. We're trying not to shut it down." Whoa... back up. Shut it down? We hadn't heard any such thing until it was spoken by Goss. Sounds like things are just as bad for Toyotas with beds as they are for pickups from Detroit. Thanks for the tip, Mike!

All we can do is pray the jackases don't get into the White House. If they do its only gonna get worse.

"Hey hardworking American, lets take part of your paycheck and give it to an unemployed bum".

Anybody ever wonder why you have to take a piss test to get a job, yet you don't have to take a piss test to get welfare?

The jackass is already in the whitehouse. A lot of lost jobs during his tenure too. Guess who paid for their unemployment? The companies that layed them off did pay for about 50% of it. The rest was paid by me and you. When you get layed off because the economy took a wrong turn, you'll be grateful for that check to hold you over while you find a new job. You're just a kid, so you don't really understand all the economics of life yet. No offense, it's just that it get's a lot more complicated once you leave the nest.

I have no problem with people who legitimately need welfare. I know people who have lost their houses as a result of job lay offs and increase in cost of living.

McCain is honestly just the lesser of two idiots. I'd rather not have a Marxist in Office. Especially one whole entire campaign is based off the words "Hope" and "Change".

Ripped off. America needs to lower the damn voting age. I recently wrote an essay on this same subject. I am more interested (and knowledgeable) in Politics than a great deal of people older than myself. Yet I have to wait another four years until my voice is heard.

Considering you can enlist in the Army at 17, You should be able to vote for your Commander in Chief.

Obama isn't actually a Marxist. Read the works of Marx, or just the Wikipedia page on Marx and you will see how far every US politician is from him, even the very liberal ones. If you were as informed as you say you are you would know Obama has many issues to his campaign. You may not agree with them, but you should at least get to know them before you vote (or speak about them).

McCain(in one hand) Obama(in the other).

Not sure who I'd want to vote for.
