Realigning factory output and staffing needs for them, this is not a surprise.

Whew, good thing those tariffs are bringing manufacturing back to America, and our Corporate Tax Giveaway will create all those jobs.

Michigan, Ohio and a plant in Canada.


GM was a failure when the government bailed out that company. After selling back the stocks to GM, the American taxpayer had lost $11 billion on that "deal".


"... Too many GM factories are devoted to making slow-selling cars and the company can no longer afford to keep them all operating without making some tough decisions. ..."


Lordstown plant in northeastern Ohio eliminated in spring of 2017 2/3 of its union jobs (3,000); the same car produced there is being produced in Mexico.

A few months ago, GM had offered a buyout to 18,000 white-collar workers ... in all their plants combined.

GM is a failure (my opinion).

Reaction to DNC gains in the House.

It is a National Security issue with keeping a American car company a flout to build cars and trucks during a war. Remember World War II.

Most of the jobs were middle level B'crats that are useless and not needed.

Had Hillary been president and this had happened, Republicans would be having a conniption and covering it 24/7 on Fox News as the decline of the American Empire

Probably... but the underline fault for automotive manufacturing movement is still NAFTA.

But, but ... MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN ... lets give them a baseball cap.

Ten years ago ...

Mitt Romney, ... , famously wrote in The New York Times in 2008: “If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for…, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.”

The 6000 hourly workers would disagree with you. But why not make things up? It's more fun, and it gives you a chance to emulate Trump.

You go on believing that crap. Caused by Trump's stupid tariff war. This decision was made months ago to go this far in planning.
