Turns Out The Ohio Chrysler Plant Deemed Doomed In 2012 Is Not So Doomed After All

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 03.16.2014 | Politics

The Toledo Blade's Tyrel Linkhorn reported Friday that a Chrysler plant in Toledo, Ohio, is having itself a pretty terrific year. Chrysler is planning on hiring 'up to 1,000 part-time employees for the Toledo Assembly complex' in order to give their full-timers a break. Those full-timers have been 'regularly working 60 hours a week,' racing to keep up with 'record demand for the Jeep Wrangler and the launch of the new Jeep Cherokee last year.' Chrysler's already been through a round of hiring part-timers: 50 of the 380 they've brought in have had their positions converted to full-time. And both management and the union are content with this arrangement.
