Yeah there are so many rumors going on right now it's unreal. But I did hear it will be going on over the next 3 days and i heard about 4 day weeks the meeting for that is supposed to be tomorrow.I'm friends with everyone they let go today and wouldn't you know that all the higher ups jobs are still secure. Imagine that.

Everyone knew what to expect. They told everybody what was going to happen, just didn't know who it would be. Really hate seeing this happen to people in general, but we were told what to expect. As far as the 4 day work week, most everyone is on the 4 day a week, 10 hr shift, except office and weekend shift.
So, Hitachi was not really firing anyone today, just involuntary layoff.

Yeah I agree, I know that this is something going on with everybody everywhere. It just makes it harder knowing that they could save money in other areas before you start cutting the work force. At least they are getting a little something to help them get by for a little while.

Yes, I agree also. Don't really know what I would have done if I was in their shoes. I mean, about taking the first buy out. But like you said, at least they have something to help for awhile. Its scary....

So was the lay-off just for salary or production also? My ex works out there and alot of workers felted that they would only lay-off the dead beats, get real no one should feel that secure about their jobs with the way the economy is and the world wide recession!
