Volvo Cars says it will hire 100-150 temporary workers for up to eight months to boost production at its main plant in Torslanda, Sweden. The auto maker is adding the workers to comply with Swedish labor regulations requiring workers to take their mandatory coffee breaks during the morning and afternoons. Volvo plans to begin placing the temporary workers into the plant in early 2005. The additional manpower will boost weekly production at the facility by as much as 350 vehicles.
