    Komatsu and CAT

    My take is that when that opportunity does arrive, CAT would be struggling to meet demand without employees that they let go. Yes, they can be rehired, because no one can relaly find a job in today's environment and they'll all be available ... almost all.

    But if they have to retrain people, it could cost them some delay in filling orders, which in turn could get them premium rate for used equipment
