I work for Transfreight, a logistics provider for Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana, Inc. (TMMI) as a truck driver. About three months ago many of us were laid off due to TMMI shutting down production. We were called back the tenth of November. We worked our first shift the eleventh. Exactly one week later, on the 18th, we were told that production was going to be cut again and it would affect our work force.

I had been fortunate and was accepted as a full time employee at a major plastics manufacturer in Evansville, IN. My benefits were due to begin December 1st. We have been told my two year old daughter possibly has CP. I have a tumor on my pituitary that requires medication. If I had stayed with the plastics company, there was a very good possibility that all of our medical problems would be considered preexisting. Going back to Transfreight gave me my insurance back immediately with no preexisting. I went back.

I made the wrong decision and I will have to live with it. I was told by my supervisor that there were no layoffs planed in the near future. I was trying to do what I thought was best for my little girl.

Since I have worked at TMMI, they have never made a decision in a week; they new well beforehand that they were going to cut production. They plan months in advance. They also new that they would not be able to hire enough drivers and get them trained quickly enough to start production when it was scheduled to start.

TMMI aloud Transfreight to recall us, many of us left full time positions to come back, knowing they would no longer need us after 18 December.

This may not be illegal in the state of Indiana, but it is certainly unethical. TMMI prides itself in taking care of its employees, but even with a 2.5 billion dollar profit, it can't afford to take care of the employees that it couldn't run without. Our paychecks may not say Toyota, but we work hard toward the same result.

I know times are hard in the automotive industry. I am not complaining that they aren't able to keep us. I am saying that calling us back with full knowledge they were going to have to let us go again is deceitful. They could have at least provided the information and let us make an informed decision.

For a company that wants to be seen as altruistic and good for the community it resides in, TMMI has done a horrible, inhumane, and down right selfish thing to those of us who have served them well.

I would recommend that everyone stay away from any company that contract to TMMI. You will be treated as a second class citizen and disposed of and taken advantage of at the whim of the company.

Not so fast!

AUTHOR: Andromeda - (U.S.A.)

Karl has the same mentality as 'Chuckles' from Phenix. No eyes or ears, just a mouth and motor. Don't get in his way, or he will 'run over' you and just keep on going.

It is obvious, from his fanatical and desperate rants, that someone lowered his IQ too far during the experiment! He needs to find some good cartoons and watch them instead of demanding attention from everyone else. Attention Deficit disorder(ADD) can be helped considerably by suitable mental care.

He doesn't care about authors problems, just his own 'world class' ego and hunger for attention. Watch his next post, and see what I mean.

Someone needs to make up a Christmas song about 'ranting Karl', and post it on the Toyota threads.

You tool.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Karl-this report is about TRANSFRIEGHT, not Toyota.

No one cares about your silly poems except you. Transfreight CHOSE to lay the author off-Toyota does NOT tell Transfrieght who to hire, fire, or lay off.

Toyota tells Transfrieght what their logistic needs are (and they do this WEEKLY, not months in advance as Craig stated.) I worked at a major parts supplier here in Buffalo for over 14 years- I know how logistics is projected.

Transfrieght decides HOW to meet their customer's needs (in this case Toyota.)

URGENT: SEND A COPY OF YOUR RIPOFF REPORT TO ALL YOUR LOCAL NEWS STATIONS.....

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

IN YOUR CITY IMMEDIATELY!!

There is a good chance that one of them will do your story and alert others of what this company did to you and your family.

Toyota Corporation is only interested in one thing- PROFITS!!!!! They will buy CHEAP parts that are DEFECTIVE and install them into new Toyota vehicles to save money and increase PROFITS!!! Here's the proof: 'Google' this- ENGINE SLUDGE, and go to the consumeraffairs website about Toyota Engine Problems and click on 'Airbags' when you are there and read the complaints from Toyota owners whose AIRBAGS did not deploy when they were in accidents.

'Google' this- SUIT: DEFECT REPORTS ALTERED TOYOTA PLANT, and scroll down to the Article about Katy Cameron's Lawsuit against Toyota. She worked at a plant owned by Toyota & GM and was TARGETTED by her SUPERVISORS for TELLING THE TRUTH about serious DEFECTS that her bosses didn't want anyone to know about!!

Toyota Corporation also CONSPIRES with the MEDIA to hide, and conceal, vital information about how MILLIONS of innocent people are TARGETTED, and how Toyota makes BILLIONS of dollars from these innocent consumers in elaborate schemes to DEFRAUD them when they purchase or lease Toyota vehicles.

Toyota's TOP executives know about all of these schemes and they obviously support them, and want to have them continue so Toyota can reap the profits.

YOUR LIFE COULD BE IN DANGER IF YOU HAVE A TOYOTA!!!! PROOF-

'Google' this- BUY A COROLLA GET BURNED LITERALLY, and read how Mr. Singh burned to death in his Toyota Corolla.

'Google' this- YOUTUBE TOYOTA SEQUOIA DEFECT, and watch the video of a Toyota Sequoia that flipped over on I-95. He could have been KILLED!!!!

Toyota's TOP executives conspire to sexually target women who work for Toyota! Here's the proof:

'Google' this- SEXUAL HARASSMENT TOYOTA, and read how a TOP executive TARGETTED his younger female employee and how she filed a $190 MILLION Lawsuit against Toyota!!! Guess what? TOYOTA SETTLED WITH HER!!! WHY??

'Google' this- BALTIMORE SETTLEMENT CALIFORNIA TOYOTA, and read how TOYOTA targetted African Americans & Hispanics and charged them higher interest rates on their car loans due to their RACE & their inability to understand the English language! TOYOTA'S way of doing business obviously trickled down into the MORTGAGE BUSINESS, wouldn't you agree? SUBPRIME MORTGAGES that TARGETTED African Americans & Hispanics may have originated at Toyota, correct?

Print copies of your Ripoff Report and mail them to as many Local News Stations in your city as possible. E-mail your Ripoff Report to Oprah Winfrey at oprah.com and keep sending your Reports to anyone & everyone you can think of including your Attorney General.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU & YOUR FAMILY!!
