I have found the same issue where I am...one person laid off and next thing we knew a new person to do the same job but did NOT have any training in that area ! How does this happen?! It is all in who you know or are related to!!

Is it possible that the people laid-off were not doing their jobs. If companies don't stay competitive with the best employees, no one will have a job.

Hey UAW, I worked at a UAW facility (which is no longer there), unions are just another form of fat and waste. Union reps. sat shooting the breeze in air conditioned offices while we worked on a hot, filthy manufacturing floor.

No one likes it but the fact is that no one can guarantee job security except a superior, competitively priced product.
