I worked for GM in Ohio pre BK and knew it was going to happen as no company can have that much dead weight and survive. What is baffling is that they are still doing the same stupid stuff. I text with people who still work in the skilled trades equipment repair area and they tell me about how they sleep and sit around doing nothing. It's not just this one person, it's probably widespread just as it was before.
I know another guy who got into Ford skilled trades in Sterling Heights who regularly works 7 days a week and some 12 hour days and say he does absolutely nothing. Never opens his tool box and obviously has plenty of time to text me! No, I do not own GM or F stock but my future does depend on GM, that is unless I want to deal with PBGC.
