Cat Rehiring Decatur Workers

September 28, 2010

After letting go thousands of workers in 2009 as equipment shipments declined, Caterpillar has begun to rehire some employees. So far, the company has brought back at least 500 workers, many of whom returned to production lines at Cat's Decatur facility. Caterpillar cut more than 19,000 full-time jobs and about 18,000 part-time, contract and agency positions last year.
