The answer is that there can be a two sided bet. If you bet on a horse that is to win then the answer would be “yes”. If this horse loses then you will be penalised for any betting from the horse that you bet on.
What if the horse is betting on a bet that will end in an inferior horse winning? In this case, the answer would be “no”. This would be the case, for example, if you bet on a horse “1 mile” and then put in a bid to bet the horse that will go 1.3 miles, the horse would be penalised for not being “1.3 miles” before the bet was placed.
There are plenty of reasons for a company to hire a contractor to prepare the factory for manufacturing. It can help minimize downtime, which has been a major problem since the auto industry went through a recession. On top of that, it may keep costs down and reduce employee turnover.
But if the employee really wants a job that the company can’t give them, how does the employee know whether they’ll be successful in their quest? There’s an answer: it’s only a matter of time before the contractor becomes dissatisfied and says “enough!” and gets out.
But some companies are trying to make themselves more resistant to losing workers.
“Our job is to train people to become productive members of the company, to create jobs and growth,” says Jim Cavanagh, president of North American production at Ford Motor Co.
“The job of a company is to make products and help our customers succeed. It’s not about getting people at the end to work for free.”
Ford and other companies often hire contractors to train workers on how to do production and logistics. They’re not just building the cars themselves, but managing how the people inside the cars do those tasks and managing supply chains.
In 2008, Ford made one of its biggest mistakes in the U.S. manufacturing industry with its new Flex-Fuel car. It produced a car with a few design choices the company had deemed too expensive and, eventually, failed to convince the car’s market to pay for more expensive fuel at home.
As a result, Ford decided to pay for the fuel with taxes and fees. This wasn’t a mistake that had already been made by the car company in Japan. After all, Ford had paid taxes and fees in Japan just recently for manufacturing Toyota’s Lexus ES hybrids. As it turns out, the
