It sounds like the Georgetown Toyota plant will be included in the plants that will be shut down next week. Can anyone confirm that?

No, Plant one will be shutdown next week and only plant one. no overtime the rest of this week. This is so that the supplier can fix the problem. As of today the faulty part is stil being used, due to the fact that the supplier hasnt fixed it. so provide a temporary solution plant one will shut down next week. Employees will have three options. 1. go in and report to work and do cleaning 2. Use your vacation days to cover time off or 3. take no pay days. that's what is happening.

I think that toyota is slacking on their quality. I hate that because their cars have been top quality for years. I have two family members working at the toyota plant and these quality issues worry me. Ford is pulling ahead of the rest in quality.

I wish they would shut down. It benefits more people who live out of Georgetown because half if not more people that work there live in another city. Maybe our tax dollars could go to fix the town up if it wasn't being used to pay Toyota's bills to keep there people employed.

Another question...will the temps be laid off and the toyota employees from plant one be moved to plant two?

word is, it will only be down for 1 week. my opinion..... they can't say how long it's going to take but i bet if it last for awile, temps will be in trouble ~~~~~ that is just my opinion so..... nobody take that to the bank! job security is nowhere to be found anymore, not just at toyota so keep that in mind if your a temp. already looking to leave! maybe this thing will be fixed faster than we all think?

my husband works at toyota too, the post earlier was correct. employees are given three options, they can report to work and do other jobs,use vacation or take the time off without pay...This is only for plant one.As for the recalls,its overwhelming the large number of vehicles that are affected, but toyota will make it right. Ford try as they may will never be able to build the vehicle that toyota does.

Got a call from my husband on his break at Toyota. Just as I suspected....... Ford uses the same supplier for the accelerator as Toyota and I hear GM is most likely involved as well. I'll be curious to see what the other's will do to correct this!

I'm not saying that you don't know what you're talking about but this is news to me? I own a recalled vehicle. If you would, please elaborate a little more in detail for myself and the others affected, please!

toyota helps our economy they pay taxes to Georgetown, plus they're as far as I am concerned the best running cars I have ever own. This is one of those things that can happen. Am very confident that they will be better than ever. Everybody wants a great car. Who wants to be broke down this day and time.

toyota is like one of the main reasons georgetown is not a ghost town. if toyota shuts down our economy will become even worse, then it already is. do you have any idea how many people would be out of work? not only people from other towns work there but majority of georgetown work there, what would be the point in fixing up the town more? it wouldn't matter because hardly anyone would care cause they would be using all their time to find a job.

How long will it be before Toyota brings more temps in, now that this problem of mass recalls has arisen?

The Japanese have been criticized quite a lot in the recent past for allegedly trying to take over our markets. I am thankful for their confidence in the American work force though. Without Japan's export of jobs to the US, we would be hurting much more that we are in this recession. I believe that Japan is our only fair "free trade" partner. We get quality products across the board from them. They have provided us with jobs that our own managers send over seas.
