Nissan’s New Hires Are $12-Per-Hour Workers Who Are Temporary for Five Years

Detroit Free Press (08/07/12) Alisa Priddle

Approximately 50% of the 1,000 new workers Nissan is adding at its Canton, MS, facility are contract workers who won’t become permanent employees for five years, says Nissan North America vice president Bill Krueger. “It is not uncommon in the industry to have temporary (or contract) workers,” says Kristin Dziczek of the Center for Automotive Research. Greater use of temporary workers is the “response of a shell-shocked industry trying to avoid anything remotely fixed until they know demand is there for a long time,” she notes.
