this is not a fair place to work. layoffs were not done by senourty. I bought a car 1 day before the layoff and even talked to my boss about buying a car and he did not even tell me there was going to be a layoff. now I am permally lay off and have to pay for a new car.

Most of the people did have alot of years service and now out of job too. Most of all Assembly supervisors/managers/operators had average over 12+ years. Based on taking care of the people who had years of service is the basic first step on closing the doors. Take care of your people until there is no money to be handed out. Too bad it took two years in the making. Too many layers will always catch up to the budget/profits.

It sounds like you know something we dont being a worker here at LexaMar...could you please verify?

As a footnote it sure does seem like Magna is getting prepared to close us down.
