The German giant is in trouble.  He's preparing for big layoffs

German tire and auto parts manufacturer, Continental, has announced the layoff of 7,150 employees by 2025. The aim of this operation is to improve competitiveness and improve production efficiency.

This year, Continental intends to eliminate 7,150 jobs in the automotive division most affected by the slowdown in automobile production, especially electric cars.

Layoffs will actually take place this quarter and will cover a total of 3.6%. Total workforce in the entire group. 5,400 people in the administration and purchasing department and 1,750 in the research and development department will lose their jobs.

As part of improving efficiency, it will be possible to transfer production to a single factory, which will reduce component transportation costs.
