“Reports of my demise” etc. … GM, which recently placed production of its electric car on temporary hold, will resume production a week earlier than scheduled. The original hold was due to lagging sales in January.
This is great news, unless you happen to be a worker on the Volt production line, in which case you know this will happen all over again any time sales lag for a short while. Contract work may come and go, but one cannot sustain an economy without reliable full-time employment available to skilled workers essential to the business. Automobile market conditions aside, people have to eat every day… why is that so hard for some employers to understand?
