This is awful for Perryville. There are a lot of rumors going around about even more layoffs in the next few weeks to months. TG does a lot for Perryville and the businesses of Perryville. Hopefully in a few months, this will turn around.

I heard that to. I heard that they are going to lay 800 more people off (not all at once but 100 at a time till it reaches that), but you can't believe everything you hear, but then on the other hand this economy is going to shit. The way I understand it they are going to try to close down TG. I sure hope not, because I know quit a few people that work there. They need to quit laying people off, because all it's going to do is cause a domino affect. One falls and everything is going to fall. We just all have to stick together, and make sacrifices for this country or its going to go down. People aren't buying, because they are afraid of losing their jobs, but if we don't buy there won't be any jobs.

Please Lord be with these people who want nothing more than to make a living wage to take care of their families. I never thought that this area would be hit with such job loss again. I remember the shoe factory closing. Perryville was thriving for a while. We will thrive again, keep praying.

What is in store for TG MO.

In January 2009, Toyota named Akio Toyoda, the grandson of the company’s founder, as its next president, returning to its roots as it faces the roughest downturn in more than 70 years. The appointment of Mr. Toyoda, 52, was widely expected as part of a management reshuffling at the company because of its losses.

Akio Toyoda Senior Managing Director Toyota Motors; "I believe India could be the fastest growing economy in the world one day....

Toyota Motor has chosen to source from India due to its competitive cost of manufacture, availability of abundant engineering talent, and strong indigenous machine tool."

That source Akio Toyoda has chosen will replace most of the North Americas Manufacturing such as TG MO.

Toyota Motors (Akio Toyoda) has just signed a contract with that source from India to invest in setting up plants for the development of Automotive Components just as they did in the USA.

No it looks good for Toyota

All of this is nothing new, you can look this up for yourself on the internet Toyota news.

Toyota Motor has chosen to source to a less labor market cost of manufacture, availability of abundant engineering talent, and strong indigenous machine tool in India which the North America market can no longer compete.

it is amazing the rumors that this town can produce. first off, tg is not going to lay off 800 people. second, they are not going looking to close the plant. its pretty simple, if toyota dont build cars, tg dont build parts. if tg dont build parts, people dont have jobs. its not like the want to lay poeple off, but sometimes you have to do things you dont want to do in order to survive and grow as a company. it is a shame because tg does do a lot for this community, like it or not.

What are the average salaries at TG?
Maybe they can start by cutting the salaries by about 20 - 40% for a while instead of laying off people all together.

They have cut workers hours to 30 hours a week. For a large family that is hard. cutting 20 to 40% what are you going to live on? We have cut way back . It can be done .

Cutting back even 20% can maybe keep their jobs. If they do it for a year or so just til things get back to normal. At least they will still have a job and some money coming in. People can always get on food stamps along with the hour cuts.

Just the way they are doing things is NUTS!!

If they need to reduce hours don't you think they could give you a schedule of your hours so perhaps some could look for additional work to compensate the loss of hours at TG.

This being off a different day each week or going to work and being sent home is not helping us at all.

We are still using gas and wear and tear on our auto as if we were working full time.

A little consideration for the loyal employees who need and want to stay with the company.

Shared Work Program
The Shared Work Unemployment Compensation Program is designed to help employers and employees. It is an alternative for employers faced with a reduction in force. It allows an employer to divide the available work or hours of work among a specified group of affected employees in lieu of a layoff, and it allows the employees to receive a portion of their unemployment benefits while working reduced hours.
Process
An interested employer may obtain a Shared Work Plan Application by contacting the Missouri Division of Employment Security, P.O. Box 3100, Jefferson City, Missouri To participate, an employer must reduce the normal weekly hours of work for an employee in the affected unit by at least 20%(but not more than 40%) and the plan must apply to at least 10% of the employees in the affected unit who meet monetary requirements for regular unemployment compensation. If the plan is approved by the Division, workers who qualify for unemployment benefits would receive both wages and Shared Work benefits. The Shared Work benefits would be that percentage of regular unemployment benefits which matches the reduction described in the employer's plan.
Wonder if TG knows about this and has checked into it??
