BMW plant looks to fill 200 temporary spots

GREER, S.C. --- Automaker BMW Manufacturing Co. plans to hire about 200 temporary production and logistics workers at its South Carolina plant.

The Greenville News reported last week that applicants need a stable work history, a high school diploma or GED and be capable of working 10-hour shifts.

BMW uses staffing firm MAU to hire workers for its Greer facility. MAU spokesman Brett Yardley said some of the current positions the company is looking to fill could be turnover in the original group hired and some are new positions.

The plant makes BMW's X5 and X6 models and will begin production of the X3 this year.

Inmates suing prison over poor conditions

ORANGEBURG, S.C. --- Inmates are suing a South Carolina jail complaining of malfunctioning toilets and showers and overall poor living conditions.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reported Sunday that 11 inmates have filed lawsuits against the Orangeburg-Calhoun Regional Detention Center in federal court. The jail holds about 400 inmates.

Orangeburg-Calhoun Law Enforcement Commission Chairman Robert Hooper said some issues in the lawsuits were discovered during the jail's 2009 annual inspection and are being addressed.

Let the inmates fix it

Let the inmates fix it themselves. It is not the taxpayers fault they are incarcerated. Why should the taxpayer have to provide for them?

The inmates plug them up,

The inmates plug them up, then sue.

Note to self: Prisons are very bad places to live, therefore I will make sure that I do not commit crimes. Because if I do, I will have to go and live there. Brilliant solution!
