GM Restores 3, 000 Jobs, Prepares to Raise Output

Source: Reuters

General Motors Co said on Tuesday it planned to restore about 3,000 jobs at U.S. assembly plants and related facilities and is getting set to raise North American production by up to 45 percent next year.

GM said it would add shifts at three assembly plants as the automaker consolidates production from plants that are closing or retooling, a process that would not add immediately to its production schedule for 2009.

But GM expects to increase North American production to about 2.8 million vehicles in 2010, up about 40 percent to 45 percent from 2009. GM had sharply curtailed North American production around its government-guided reorganization.

GM said it would add shifts at three U.S. assembly plants next year, restoring 2,400 jobs, and expected to restore 600 jobs at related facilities across the United States that produce engines, transmissions, stampings and castings.

12. Nope
If the GOP/McCain had their way, GM/Chrysler would be gone and MI would have never recovered.

11. I hope GM is turning the corner
A car like the 2010 LaCrosse gives me hope for them, though it still has some of their bad old ways ingrained in it. It's a bulky heavy car, and the fuel economy of the base V6 is less than stunning to the point that they're going to drop an I4 in it. Still, the overall direction seems to be a positive one.
