Hiring Issues might delay New Wrangler Launch

Seems there are some unhappy Jeep workers. As most of you know, the next generation Wrangler will be built only in part by Jeep as 3 major suppliers will do most of the work. Apparently, exisiting Jeep workers are supposed to have priority for the jobs that will be offered by the suppliers (before these Jeep employees lose their exisiting jobs). It looks like the suppliers don't think some of the exisiting Jeep works meet the qualifications. See the Toledo Blade article for the details.

A couple of interesting tidbits from the article:

Looks like Jeep wants to start building protoypes in February.

Production of the 4-door is slated for July.
