GM CEO to meet with U.S. lawmakers over job cuts

  • [*]


FILE PHOTO: General Motors CEO Mary Barra at a press conference at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., January 16, 2018.
REUTERS/REBECCA COOK/FILE PHOTO(Reuters) - General Motors Co (GM.N) Chief Executive Mary Barra plans to visit Capitol Hill next week to discuss the company's plans to halt production at five plants in North America next year and cut up to 15,000 jobs, two congressional aides said on Friday.

The largest U.S. automaker has come under harsh criticism from lawmakers from both major political parties since Monday and from President Donald Trump. Barra is expected to meet with lawmakers from Michigan and Ohio, where GM plans to shutter three plants, as well as senior leaders in Congress. GM did not immediately comment.

I wonder if Corvette will be a topic of discussion at this meeting...?

Wrecking the lives of 4k+ people is not a good decision. Just saying.

Why does the government feel they have any right to question a decision made by the GM CEO? I guess this is what happens when you get a government bailout.

Unfortunately the vehicles produced at those plants are not selling and the plants are running at 50% or less capacity.

You avoided the question.



Using your logic I should still be paying Ralph even though I downsized 3 years ago and decided not to use a salesperson.

Because you should just hand out welfare when sales donít happen? Hmm. I wonder what the owners of the company would say.

I apologize but I don't see the logic in that statement.

The option is to continue to lose money, face bankruptcy and have the government bail them out again.

Not an option I would like to see happen.
