GM - Insiders Take
The layoffs at General Motors have been going non-stop for a few years now. Amazingly, I still have two family members that work there (in management).
I asked one the other day how much these labor cutbacks have had an effect on product quality.
GM_Employee - Not at all....our products are looking great right now. We have so many people making six figures that do nothing all day - when they show up that is. They have no degrees, and just put a bolt in, or are *engineers*....There was a time around the year 2000 where *Generous Motors* just started giving raises across the board. These people are in their 50s and have a totally different work mentality than the younger generation.
Note - yesterday GM filed for bankruptcy.
