The writing has been on the Wall for a long time. Let's not look at this as a surprise. We live in a Global Economy. We saw the end of Manufacturing here in the US for years now and GM here in Janesville has been threatening a close for some time. We have to adjust to the economy and market..

True but it would be cool if they would start making a small car and build it in Janesville instead of Korea.The goverment has to convince business to bring their businesses back to America instead of outsourcing to other countries.
Other countries limit American products and tax them so much that those countries buy their own and support their own.prob is we have to lower corporate tax and bring these jobs back to the USA and start manufacturing things here again and when we can manufacture things here like we used to 20 years ago and be self sufficient,then we can tax the hell out of foreign products so people buy and support America!

I hope our country remembers how important - fundamental - it is to actually BUILD things.

So long, Fisher Body, and thanks for all the trucks.
