Our society is set up for the wealthy elite , what is the real focus of our country? We all clearly see the negatives occurring, so what are the positives in America today?
Topics regarding layoffs at General Motors
I was offered a position making 15k more a year for similar work. Getting laid off was a blessing in disguise.
Is it true MPG employees won’t get WARN pay? I just read this rumor... I was at GM less than 3 years (barely) and laid off on Feb 4th at MPG. I would expect my last paycheck to be at the end of this month for 2yrs severance.... would seem really... read more
They don't belong in Detroit anymore ,
We can produce everything here and export it. If we can build engines in the US then put them on a ship , we can build cars here and put them on a ship too. Imagine if we had more open plants in Michigan , Flint , Detroit all of the ones that GM... read more
Who knew that selling McDonald's employees a 45K SUV on 8 yr lease wouldn't work? Car bubble as bad or worse than 2008 housing bubble. Record car sales had NOTHING to do with a "Booming Economy" and everything to do with lending people money who have... read more
Still plugging along applying, etc. but my 40 year old something self needs some luck at this point. Michigan Unemployment benefits need to be extended! They were 26 weeks but appears to be 20 now. I’ve applied to 100+ job postings and went through... read more
Because they know that their image is destroyed.
During the exit discussion with HR, he made a point to say that I was eligible for rehire. Several of my friends/co-workers in other areas were not so lucky. What determined whether you are allowed to repost for a position?
Screw GM , at least Ford and FCA are doing something for the country and Michigan , GM baried it's self.
I wanted to share my experience to see if maybe it help even one person dealing with the layoffs. I was laid off in February and I hit the ground running with updating my resume and cover letter. I then applied everywhere almost anywhere. I was not... read more
This rumor was circulating around for quite some time, but I didn't make much of it until I saw it with my own two eyes. A colleague of mine was laid off in the last wave and I overheard our bos advising him to reapply for a job opening at our... read more
One month ago, GM laidoff 35% in our team, most are age 45+, now it is hiring smae skill again. It's age discrimination, F---... read more
I’ve applied as a contractor for a job at GM, which is very similar to my job that I had as a salaried worker before I was laid off. Is my history at GM a advantage or a liability to be chosen for the job. Has anyone faced something similar?
Marry Barra is done.
Did they cut all or are there some still left? Just curious if anyone out there knows.
Just like the 2008-'10 cuts. I was with GM back then and I saw first hand how they laid off only a few managers compared to the large number of engineers and other workers. I remember them shuffling managers and execs around just so they could hide... read more
Is "Equivl19" the prorated 2019 TeamGM payment? WARN Pay. I was not expecting this! Is this a one time payment? How was it determined? I hope the job search is going well for everyone!
I understand Ford laid off many managers and directors on their first round of cuts. GM hardly touched the leadership roles on the cuts leaving a top heavy organizational structure. Of course those remaining will suffer as leadership always plans... read more
I just logged in to ADP ipay and I see the prorated 2019 bonus, but no regular pay. Anyone else experience this? NOTE: Just mailed my paperwork in March 1st.
At Ford we have 8 layers--GSR (General Salary Roll, aka, the worker bees), and then Supervisors, Managers, Chiefs, Directors, VP's, Executive VP's, and the President. As for ranks, college grads get hired in as GSR 5 and then get promoted to 6, 7... read more
I have a feeling there’s more to come within 2019, maybe not in such an organized manner and not in those numbers , but I definitely have a feeling that they didn’t achieve the numbers of workers they find redundant. If that new wave should com, when... read more
My statement came today. It's about 75% of my actual pay at GM.
The severance package states there is no compensation for unused vacation unless dictated by State Law. Michigan state law states that earned unused Vacation time must be paid upon severance. Anyone know how much vacation time was earned by those of... read more
11 Step Process: Ford Salaried Employee Layoffs I have been Ford salaried employee over 30 years. The pattern repeated for all the salaried layoffs: Step 1 - nudge the highly paid or near retirement out the door Step 2 - hire many young people and... read more
I find it perfidious how GM only takes pride in being an American company when it suits the leadership. The image of American workers building American cars for the American market is simply not there anymore ( I always get disgusted lately when I... read more
Who will take over who , will it be a hostile take over or fire sale or perhaps a clean merger? Stay tuned folks and hang on tight. Dum dum dum.
Is there anybody who is now feeling safe at GM - considering that layoffs seem to be done for a foreseeable future? I'll be honest, after what just happened, I'm not sure I'll ever be able to relax once again and think I have any kind of long term... read more
Ahhh ok ! More like driving China and Mexico
There you go: &ford-motor
Thanks to the contributors.
Layoffs began today at Ford, and they will continue intermittently until mid-year. Prayers and all the best to those who are leaving.
Why not invest in Americans first?
