There were fewer Russians (in the auto industry), but better Russians (producing more)
The total head count in the automobile industry has shrunk, but output has grown, a testimony to improving labor productivity in the country, a news report said Monday.
Companies that produce cars and car components have reduced their staff by 29 percent since 2008, when Russia began taking a battering from the economic crisis, according to ACM-Holding, a market research company.
The auto industry headcount now stands at 243,304 people.
During the same time, the industry has cumulatively stepped up production by 24 percent.
