    this is totally off topic but does anyone here work for chrysler? with all of the bad news going on about plant closings, layoffs, buyouts its not looking good. my stepfather works for chrysler and he is stuck between taking the buyout or staying at work. does anyone have any information or advice about what to do. he is worried that if he stays he will end up getting layed off and not receive anything. if you work for chrysler please i would love your input

    It doesn't look good. This round is supposed to be salaried employees, but hourly workers are usually not too far behind. How old is he? The closer to 65 the more he should stay -- and take the buyout if he's really close to retirement. If he's under 50, take the buyout and go to school. There are a lot of fascinating jobs out there.

    What a tough decision, good luck to him.

    there are two chrysler factories here and this is affecting a lot of friends of mine. most of them are young enough that they are taking the buyouts and moving on. i don't know what the older ones are gonna do though.

    I used to work for Chrysler, my opinion is to get away from automotive, I regret ever getting involved with the auto industry. I wish him the best.
