Lordstown plant’s shutdown to continue

Lordstown plant’s shutdown to continue


General Motors Co. Lordstown will not resume production tonight as originally planned.

The plant, which produces the Chevrolet Cruze, has been on hiatus since Monday afternoon because of a “supplier issue” relating to struts.

Production was expected to begin with Thursday’s third shift, but after further testing of those parts, it was determined the plant is not ready to begin production.

Strut testing will continue.

It is not yet known when the plant will resume production.

General Motors...yet another big government, free market intrusion success story. As the brilliant adage goes, put a government agency in charge of the Sahara Desert, and it will run out of sand!

Out of work? You act as if GM has shut down. This is only a temporary issue due to a supplier problem. And as a matter of fact those GM workers just got a signing bonus with the new contract and they also received a Christmas bonus so don't paint things bleaker than they really are. Not sure how much "suffering" will be endured from a few days off.
