According to foreign media reports, the Mirafiori plant of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in Turin has not been fully utilized. On Dec. 4, local time, the FCA told the union that it would temporarily lay off 3,245 blue-collar and white-collar workers, more than half of the total number of factory employees, due to the restructuring of the plant to produce electric vehicles.

The Mirafio plant employs about 5,000 people, including workers in assembly, stamping and power assembly. The layoffs will affect all the workers in the assembly plant. About 2,445 workers will be laid off on January 1, 2019. More than 800 workers will be laid off before March 4, 2019. The layoffs will continue until December 31, 2019.

On November 29, local time, the FCA said it planned to invest more than 5 billion euros ($5.7 billion) in new models and engines in Italy over the next three years in order to make better use of factories and improve employment and profits. In addition, employees will be trained in electric and hybrid power assembly technology. Starting from 2020, the plant will increase the production of Fiat 500 electric models.

The plant currently produces only Maserati Levante, which will be continued by workers in shifts. During the layoffs, project workers will be paid lower, which is funded by the Italian government and employers.

How sad. There are no words to describe. This could be due to the power that machines have in their ability to create and at times even out perform us as individuals. As a business owner who has employees, I am concerned about my workers and their ability to maintain their jobs. We are trying to give them work, it does matter and they are so valuable to me as a site owner. We sell auto glass tints. These are valuable especially in a market with lots of people. However we have machines that do all of our designing and cutting for the tints, hopefully we don't have machines that can perform the installation process of the tints, but I feel for these individuals. If you are in Jackson Mississippi, and need a window tinted or need a wrap for your business. Let us know. we can help you get all of that done. https://www.windowtintjackson.com/
