To all the naysayer, sour grapes, jealous people out there, take a pill.
Don't disparage those who will get a job. Don't dispargae or berate those who are in the industry.
The majority of people working in the industry are hard working individuals, give back to their comminities, and depend on their job to provide for their families.
Don't believe that the few the media picks out as bad workers, represents all.
About the LOAN the gov't had with GM? Paid back 100% so GM owes the taxpayer nothing. If the taxp[aer still owned part of GM, then it would be in your best interest to promote the product.
Let me say that if YOU were working at GM you would understand. YOU would be spending money in your community, helping small businesses, giving to local charities, etc.
Be glad that GM is still in the area, hiring the local people. Be glad that there are jobs coming.. When jobs leave some of you whine about it. Now you have jobs coming, and you whine just the same.
Dang Yankee and Taxed Payer, if you knew what was up, you'd know the 2 vehicles slated for Spring Hill were brought back from planned production in Mexico. They aren't going to bring all production back to the US, but this is a start.
GM did not pay back it's loan, it just moved taxpayer funds around, it's just smoke and mirrors (see my previous posts with links).

As far as bringing vehicles back to the US, they should have never left in the first place. As long as GM owes the American taxpayer money, they shouldn't even consider sending work overseas or across the borders of the US.

It isn't my job (as you stated)to promote General Motors product, it's General Motors job. They have to design affordable vehicles people want and it's the assemblers job to build it right the first time. If neither one of you (GM or union) are up to the job don't expect me or the public at large to bail out your jobs again.

If "your team" can't get it right this time, you deserve to go out of business.

I was a temp for GM. I was called back three times I loved working there and yes the work is hard. I heard that some temps came in and didn't last the day. one in which walked in and turned around and left saying he couldn't do it. Don't know if i will be called back again or not. I hope so. If you get on don't think its easy or you will be one of them that walks back out. Pray it all works out cause Spring Hill, Columbia and all areas need the jobs GM will bring in.

Eh?
If I knew what was up?
I never said anything close to what you are trying to imply.
Care to explain?

SouthernGirl,

Where abouts did you start in Saturn as a Temp?
Anywhere near Team 2 in General Assembly?
