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.
