I believe the heavy hit areas are engineering, development and project based positions. FCA was busting at the seams in Auburn Hills with 6 big launches over next 2 years.

Are you all able to obtain state unemployment while on this freeze?

It is not true that all contractors were laid off. I don’t know where the line of demarcation is, but in my organization, the ratio of contractors to direct hires is on the order of 80% to 20%.
I am a contractor. I was not laid off yesterday.

Are you still getting benefits from your Contracting Companies?

Yes. That’s true. As far as I know, at least hundreds of contracts are being “paused” on their assignments for at least 3 weeks.

Not all but most contractors were asked to stop working effective immediately.

The contracting companies mentioned that this is most probably a "pause/freeze" in the contract until the lockdown is in place and that there is a good chance most of us will be called back.

However, they did ask us to submit our company laptops in the next day or two.
