2 Directors at MPG said they encourage the re ent layoffs to reapply as 800+ jobs available. Really? We had no value last week and now they've reconsidered?

Friend of friend was let go after 6 months last week. Gm called him for an interview 4 days later to work for another group.

It's not about that, it's about how many families can you divert from GM products. I've so far, diverted 17 families out of 18, and the 18th was a GM employee. No luck in that one, but she's coming around. She loved the volt, and well, GM no longer loves the volt. It's only a matter of time now.
I've lost GM more money in revenue, than they've ever paid me annually. Just doing my part, as an advocate against. Until they make amends, the effort won't stop.
All the best.
I started working at 55 and new hires coming start at 65. After the three year NCH program they'll be making more than me. Rehiring would actually cause GM to spend more money in the long run.

Who were the directors ? How did you hear about this ?
An old friend in the biz called it employee recycling, and it's intended to keep the wages down. Once you've grown accustom to a certain wage, it's hard to undo unless you get let go. Suddenly the temptation to just have a job to pay the bills become more important, than how much you make.
You will find the former settling for less than they once made before. It's quite sinister. If you answer to a higher power in life, I would hate to have to answer to how my opinions, impacted the lives of others. I leave that, to the less moral, hence, why I would never make the management ranks.
I was at MPG. My EGM and the separate EGM who walked me out told me to reapply. We heard nothing from our director as he is in warren during the 3 months of anxiety
Lay off the old and expensive.
Lay off the young and cheap also to mask what you're doing.
Encourage all the people to reapply to mask what you're doing.
Hire only the young and cheap.
Tell the new hires they are wanted for their new skills.
