Maybe the "Caravans" will carry them across...

I know how you feel. I’m trying to be patient about mine until it gets into D1 Status with a build date. I’m counting the days until the Brampton plant reopens for production again on April 15th.

One week down one to go until production starts back up.

Hey, Google says they're open!

Too bad for the workers, these temp layoffs come out of their pockets and not good for anybody.

I doubt that Google is accurate about this. We all know that this shut down was planned a few months in advance.

I know the feeling. I’m also trying to wait patiently for Brampton to build my car too. It’s not easy waiting like this. I try to not think about the car, but it’s hard not too.

True in all this waiting anxiously for our cars to be built let's not forget who's really feeling the pain of these shutdowns. The workers on the line who aren't getting a check. I'm sure they'd love to be making money these two weeks while pumping out our cars.

I thought that Dodge would at least give the workers at Brampton unemployment for the two weeks that they aren’t working. However, unemployment takes a few weeks to get set up before one gets their first check in the mail. I wonder if Dodge still gives them their paychecks even though the plant is temporarily closed for two weeks?

They probably can file and maybe the union will give them something too.
