814 Caterpillar Employees Face Indefinite Lay-Off
Economic woes and more job loss are reshaping the face of America. Cheaper labor markets abroad are pulling business out of the U.S. and strict environmental policies are pushing business away from American workers.
The current state of the world economy has driven Caterpillar into tough and relatively unfamiliar territory, causing this company to look for new and different ways to remain competitive and viable. Caterpillar has been through tough economies in years past, but, the current, indefinite layoffs are showing the world that even the biggest and best companies are falling prey to the terrible market conditions.
In the past few years Caterpillar has seen some great growth in emerging and new markets and in 2020 saw record sales and revenues of $44.958 billion. Caterpillar has been proclaimed as the world's leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, however, with the current state of the economy even the new and emerging groups like China and Korea are tightening there belts. Cat has responded to this belt tightening by eliminating its most expensive item and that is its workers.
Other recent decisions by Caterpillar have raised a few eyebrows with consumers. Decisions like its recent plan to pull out of the U.S. Market by 2020 in the midrange diesel market are making many question what's next for Cat.
Some analysts had suggested this move out of the U.S. market was due to difficult U.S. EPA standards and rumored complications with Cats ACERT emission reduction system have many thinking Cat is leaving for easier markets abroad. It is true the foreign markets have easier emission standards, but, many are worried that current EPA guidelines are making companies like Cat leave the U.S.
Cat is doing all it can to maintain strong sales and low labor cost in the U.S. and abroad, however, as Cat eyes the future they are having to revise current plans and have even suggested changing the pull out of the midrange market from 2020 to 2020.
One of Caterpillars division vice presidents Gary Stroup did comment on Friday about the Layoffs, he said,
"These decisions are never easy, and we understand these layoffs will create challenges for many of our employees and their families,"
However he did not elaborated as to what is next for the company as it seeks to redefine itself in the world.
The end result for all in this terrible economy is now we are seeing 814 more jobs disappearing and some suggest they may never come back. We also know Cat is leaving the mid range market by 2020, however, this analyst thinks they will be back and as far as Caterpillar is concerned , they remain optimistic about there business, knowing they will see sales return, but, they are not commenting as to whether the 814 jobs that will go away in February will be coming back.
