Do You Work in the Auto Industry? We Want to Hear From You.
Growth in sales of electric vehicles has created thousands of jobs in auto manufacturing, batteries and other new fields, but not without turmoil. There is talk of layoffs at some suppliers and automakers even as other companies expand.
I cover the auto industry for The New York Times, and I am planning to write about how the shift in technology is affecting jobs.
If you work for an electric vehicle manufacturer or supplier, such as a battery maker, I’d like to know about how these changes affect you — whether you find the job invigorating or exhausting, and what the work environment is like.
I also plan to write about how jobs involving combustion engine vehicles are changing. Some workers might consider electric vehicles a threat while others might see them as an opportunity to acquire new skills.
No matter which kind of company you work for, tell me whether these changes make you feel optimistic or worried.
