|One thing is certain, Mary Barra will get a big bonus from GM for laying off workers and increasing profits. Thousands of workers have to go on unemployment or uproot their family. CEOs don't care how many people they screw as long as they get a huge bonus|
Statement from GM CEO Mary Barra:
“I had very constructive meetings with members of Congress from Ohio and Maryland.
"I share their concerns about the impact the actions we announced last week will have on our employees, their families and the communities. These were very difficult decisions — decisions I take very personally.
"I informed the members that many hourly employees at the impacted U.S. plants will have the opportunity to work at other U.S. GM plants and that we are committed to working with them to minimize the impact on the communities.
"I also informed them that all salaried GM workers impacted by these actions are being offered outplacement services to help them transition to new jobs."
