To the news that General Motors will be cutting 14,000 jobs in North America and shuttering five plants amidst a strategy to reposition itself for the future. In Maryland, that means the closure of a White Marsh transmission plant that would see hundreds lose their jobs. While we can sympathize that GM has to assess what vehicles make it a profitable company — sedans aren’t selling and an electric hybrid has been surpassed — we also recognize that many of its profitable models will be made in Mexico and China. Particularly insulting is how the American taxpayers saved GM at the height of the recession with a bailout, ultimately losing more than $10 billion in its investment in the company. We stand with President Trump and the unionized auto workers on this one, GM needs to reassess its commitment to the American worker, consumer and taxpayer.
