Class act!!! F**k you - that's what people say when they have no intelligent come back. I agree with you that they should be paying back the loans. We are not discussing the banks. We are discussing Toyota and how the Federal Government is abusing their power. There was never this much investigation into Ford and they had the deadliest recall ever!!!!!

Toyota workers, especially the contracted-temps, are going to feel the 'pinch' even more so in the coming months as Toyota's now been shown to have Zero-credibility. The glut of unsaleable Toyotas is causing a backlash which is rippling through the production lines.

I, for one am glad the plant is shutting down. It's about time! The Japanese should have known better than to employ a bunch of retards and to set up shop in Kentucky of all places!
I hope Toyota goes out of business and Georgetown becomes a Ghost town!

If Toyota shuts down, which it won't, just means more people on welfare. That's what Ky really needs!

Will it mean nearly the same thing, if due to Toyota's duplicitous conduction of their 'business', which seems to be inflating the virtues of their machinery, legions are forced to seek Welfare?

Look at the situation in California. Toyota pulls out of NUMMI. People were harmed there. And, in Mississippi, Toyota's intent toward the uncompleted factory there remains a mystery. Toyota is currently in free-fall and the bottom is nowhere in-sight.

Toyota did this to themselves. They merely produce gremlin-ridden machines shown to be prone to catastrophic failure.

I repeat; Toyota did this to themselves, disillusioned many and left millions of people in-the-lurch.

Actually, the company you don't seem to remember, went bankrupt. That's why they pulled out. Which led Toyota to pull out because they couldn't justify keeping the plant open to build only half the cars. But don't tell anybody.

No one here will mention it. We're too busy revelling in the embarrassment, the imminent ruin, of Toyota.
