GM excuse for ‘offshoring' is cheap
Pundits have valid points about shutting plants that are producing cars not selling enough. However, General Motors’ job was to foresee this happening so all that was needed was a relatively short shutdown to change plants’ manufacturing to different cars or trucks.
With the newer plants, with all the robotics available, this should not be as time consuming or difficult. To use this as an excuse to possibly take manufacture “offshore” — especially if it’s China — is cheap and clueless, at best. I would seriously consider a GM electric vehicle made in the U.S., but never one from China. Shortsighted people will say, “But the profits go to us.” But what about the lost wages and profits from them? Glen Gunter
