Lay-offs

about
How many lay-offs have there been at the Bagdad mine in 2012? I have several years experience in mining and would like to work for Freeport-McMoRan in Bagdad, but have heard they have lay-offs quite often. Want to hear from someone who works there.

What is there to layoff people?

about
They need to have a little more field experience before they make judgments. Management decision based on instant stockholder gratification and not for the good overall health of the company. My contention is that it is government policy that is causing layoffs to happen and our management warned us today about upcoming layoffs. It's a mining company, so it's an old-boys club in a lot of ways and most of the people who were let go didn’t have good contacts with the management otherwise those who are management favorite, although they are not fit to stay in, they are secure in their positions.
