Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer, Yamaha Motor India Group has planned to lay off about 200 employees across various divisions such as production, procurement, sales and marketing, several industry.
A company so big in nature with a massive revenue, laying off so many employees without any compensation is ridiculous. Employees having served the company for 20-25 years are asked to leave one fine day without any consideration is cold hearted and ruthless.
Motofumi Shitara who is the chairman of the company has smartly projected this as a restructuring move whereas it is just an excuse during COVID times. My friends father has been laid off and i went to his house to meet him the same day, i cannot even begin to describe the state of mind and shock he was in. I was shocked to see the company that calls itself a family, has to resort to such cheap and downmarket tactics. I urge authorities to take notice and help people whos life they have ruined. Motofumi Shitara is ruthless and a big fraud and should be ashamed of himself, just because the management failed to foresee correct business measure why should 200 people pay the price for it? We all know how big a company Yamaha is and how they could have saved 2o0 lives from getting ruined but they did not despite people pleading and begging them to. They claim to do this because they aim to increase production, how can production increase if the workforce decreases?

Also please see their reviews on Glassdoor and other review platforms. They are very smart when it comes to projecting their image and protecting their reputation. It is high time we expose them and bring out the truth. Just because its a big automobile company doesnt mean they have the right to silence or manipulate the truth. WE WANT JUSTICE!
