My husband works there and no one knows. They're not getting any overtime at all right now. So I don't look for them to be hiring anytime soon.

I work there and we got news yesterday that we will be going to 4 eight hour days the week after next so I dont look for them to be bringing anyone back or hiring anytime soon. It doesnt look good but we are in better shape than the factories in the automotive industry such as tokico and k.i. Word is that this will last at least two months, but I havent heard anything official on the time span.

I work at O, and honestly I dont think they know what the future is like, its day to day for the management on site IMO. One thing for sure, old man Vic is gonna hang on to his baby, O will be fine, my advice to your hubby is to hang in there, we will have several retiring again this year, this will allow him a chance to return when this recession/depression is over. just my two cents worth....
