Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

lay offs
Flar works with two men that are involved with the Ford plant in Louisville. They are untouched by the lay off plans as announced for the next six years. My curiosity is about news coverage of the layoffs. And, being lazy -- plus, having put the kitchen on my platter of evening activity, I'm asking here rather than doing the research.

His friends say that Ford is offering 4 years of college and $100,000 severance plans. I didn't see anything about this in the Herald Leader coverage of the layoffs in this morning's paper.

Has this been reported anywhere? I'm curious about whether it applies to all of the reported 30,000 people (over six years), as it would amount to 30 billion dollars plus tuition costs. wow.

An inquiring mind shall now return to a dirty microwave oven and a bulgy TiVo.

my bet is that it is management types who get this sort of severance plan

And, it's common for management types to need four years of college?

Perhaps if changing industry, I don't know, but I seriously doubt that joe schmoe on the line is going to get a 100k + college severance package. I would love to be wrong, but I feel pretty cynical about that kind of news.
