Ford Is Going To Have Some Pissed Employees

I just got notice from my contract firm that Ford is mandating a summer shut-down for all R&E & PD employees the first week of July.

Looks like they are following in Chryslers foot steps.

I had already planned my vacation for that week, so no skin off me. But other contract people that planned their vacation time for other weeks are now going to get soaked with another week of unpaid vacation.

I would be pissed.

WHY? One week can save them that much money?? I don't get it...

That kind of sucks. Sort of short notice, but not considering most people have made their summer plans.

I don't know Pam. Once you take into consideration not only pay, but the other things they have to pay for it probably adds up quick.
