Thread regarding Goodyear layoffs

What's going on in Gadsden Goodyear?

How bad is it? We know a lot of people are being laid off due to the change to eight-hour shifts, but I can't seem to find anywhere just how bad it is. Does anybody know the total number?

Also, just want to say good luck to all the affected people. I hope you land in a much better position much sooner than you expect.

Nothing official yet but all the signs point to an eventual shutdown. The corporation has made no investments in the plant in over 10 years and buyouts were offered to all eligible employees in the plant last month. The plant also recently eliminated one whole production shift.

On September 11, 2019 the entire plant was offered buyouts. A total shutdown is in the near future.

Thanks OP. Some people I know who have been affected are still looking for jobs. A few have started to move as there aren't many jobs around for them. There are support groups who are helping out: https://abc3340.com/news/local/gadsden-groups-helping-workers-affected-by-goodyear-layoffs

Stay strong. They can try to break us by hiring not-so-American suits but cannot break real American values.
