Toyota Motor Corp. says it plans to take advantage of a Japanese legal ruling that enables manufacturers to make use of more temporary workers on production lines. The auto maker says it plans to hire between 500 and 1,000 temporary workers, depending on production levels at various plants throughout Japan. Toyota already has more than 8,500 temporary workers at its various Japanese production facilities and views the new flexibility as a way to increase output at minimal cost.
