Georgetown Toyota plant idle Friday

Production has been idled for Friday at the Toyota plant in Georgetown.

That means workers can take odd jobs at the plant, use vacation time or take unpaid time off.

It has been reported that workers may have to take three more idle days in March and April, as well.

Friday's halt in production comes a day after Toyota President Akio Toyoda visited the plant. He met everyone from Governor Beshear and top executives to line workers.

"Our people are very keen about quality and pride," Toyoda said yesterday.

The company is trying to prevent its vehicles from being over produced since sales have slowed amid safety recalls.

The Georgetown plant is Toyota's largest in North America. It makes the Camry, Avalon, and Venza.
