Slumping vehicle sales hit employment in Japan’s auto sector

Slumping vehicle sales are starting to take a toll on the employment situation in the automotive industry. Since Nov. 8, Mazda Motor Corp. has stopped soliciting new workers on fixed-term contracts at its head office plants in Hiroshima Prefecture, which mainly manufacture finished vehicles, and the Hofu plant in neighboring Yamaguchi. Honda Motor Co. has also suspended recruitment of workers on similar terms at its Yorii plant in Saitama, which produces SUVs and sedans. Source Japan Times
