Panasonic set to cut 15,000 jobs, close 27 plants world to cut cost. So is Toyota, Nissan (20,000). I thought the most influenced country is America, but these Japanese companies are cutting people wildly. Can't they really support their employees? or only seek for profits?

When people stop buying Those things then the company isn't making the money to pay the employees so they have to lay them off. People aren't going to buy those things when they might be laid off in the next month or so. People that do still have job aren't spending and saving in case they do get laid off.

But companies should play a role not only an emplyer but a leader. be responsible for those who have worked hard , some even devote their youth to them.

Car companies like every one else are in the business to make money. So if we the public are not buying cars and the companies continues to put them out and not doing any lay offs they are soon out of business and then every one is out of a job. and those cars just set on a lot somewhere.

even though toyota is the largest car sold on the market i think maybe their just taking caution after seeing what were going through. they don't want to be in the next big 3
