Toyota Screws Employees

At least the Big 3 man-up when it slows work and lays employees off.

Not Toyota, it stops production due to slow sales and makes employees take vacation days.

Toyota plans to stop production of its Tundra pickup trucks and Sequoia SUVs for six days by the end of August at the plant about 20 miles north of Evansville, Ind.

Plant spokeswoman Kelly Dillon says the "nonproduction days" are an effort to avoid layoffs. Workers will be asked to take vacation days or a day off without pay when production is halted. (emphasis mine)

Non-production days is code for we don't want to pay our employees, so we will force them to use their vacation days instead.
