Future of Work

Workers at a General Motors vehicle factory stand during a meeting to discuss their reactions to an announcement of plans to put some 1,000 workers on paid leave, in Sao Jose dos Campos July 30, 2014. General Motors Co wants to put nearly a fifth of its workers at a factory in Brazil on paid leave, an auto workers union said on Thursday, amid falling output in Latin America's largest economy. Calling the move "unnecessary," the union said 1,000 of 5,200 workers in Sao Jose dos Campos, Sao Paulo state, could be laid off. Workers and the Detroit-based auto maker will likely discuss the proposal on Aug. 1, a union leader said. REUTERS/Roosevelt Cassio (BRAZIL - Tags: BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT TRANSPORT) - GM1EA7V0DC201
