According to a Japanese news agency, Toyota is pulling up stakes at its Fremont, Calif., factory, known as NUMMI. This is the plant that was jointly run by Toyota and GM before GMs bankruptcy filing this summer. The Detroit-based automaker decided NUMMI where it built the Pontiac Vibe alongside the Toytoa Matrix and Corolla was not integral to its future. NUMMI employs 4,700 people and is the only U.S. Toyota plant with UAW employees.

Nothing to see here folks! You 4,700 hundred laid-off works can just blame Bush for this.
Who in their right mind would invest in GM or California or....
The total impact may be 20k jobs in CA. Suppliers will close also.
This is the last car plant in CA. I wonder how many UAW jobs are now left in CA. Probably not many.
hmmmm...”NUMMI employs 4,700 people and is the only U.S. Toyota plant with UAW employees. “
in a related previous story: “Jun 10, 2008 ... The UAW International Executive Board has unanimously voted to endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president, the union announced today. ...”
We are now a welfare state that punishes wealth, success and good business.
We are growing people who take from us by way of the government and not tax PAYERS.
Decades of the great society and bad public school educations.
business move, not mood...
So all those trillions in Tarp were punishment for the wall streets crowd. DAMN, I didn't know.
The UAW asked for it, they got it!
Good for Toyota. Who needs King Obama GM anyway, including the Union.
California has always led the way - this time, it’s into financial ruin.
However, they can save their reputations by being first to start the upcoming revolution/war. They won’t be alone.
The Matrix/Vibe design was getting a little long-in-the-tooth.
No, they were punishment for us.
CHANGE HAS ARRIVED! You DON’T NEED NO STINKIN’ JOB ANYWAY!
(Tacoma Production will shift to the NON-UAW plant in Southern Indiana)
only U.S. Toyota plant with UAW employees
Gee! what a sad day for the UAW and a happy one for Toyota.
I just got an email from David Axelrod. He stated that 14,700 people will lose their health care today. How can he know that? Why that is almost exactly the same number of people that will lose their job today. Coincidence?
The Obama DemOpression rolls on. It is no longer a recession, folks. This is a politically induced depression, a DemOpression.
Toyota is probably dancing in the street. They probably are thrilled to be rid of the UAW vermin.
NUMMI employs 4,700 people and is the only U.S. Toyota plant with UAW employees.
UAW work rules and California Taxes!
LOL. Another six months of Obama and we'll be having White riots.
I wouldn’t remotely think of opening a plant in Cali... unless the benefit of needing to be near a west coast port was so cost advantageous that it outstripped the rediculously excessive cost of operating there.
