Obviously, THE Obama did not order the departure of of enough GM execs to get the point across. Elimination of more US jobs, greater reliance upon outsourcing, .......GM management still cannot comprehend the source of their problems, that the government money was intended to SAVE US jobs, and that the same, tired, tried and failed strategy of the past WILL NOT WORK.
So now GM is going to reduce their desperately needed engineering and sales staff......while completely ignoring the bloated, underperforming, incompetent, Byzantine management that is rapidly approaching numbers on par with those that do the actual work. GM does not need 160+ VPs. If labor rates are too high, we also need to look at the fact that the D3 cosistantly pay wages and benefits to management that are far greater than any offered outside the US.
GM management is overstaffed, overpaid, and underperforming. Major cuts are needed here. Yesterday.
