Maybe one day, hopefully in the next round, they’ll decide that Kenny boy isn’t needed anymore either and throw him out on his a$$ too. With a nice golden parachute and blue bag of course.

GM's HUGE mistake was not taking their best salaried employees and retraining them in these new areas. An experienced and loyal employee with great historical performance that is retrained in a new skill set is far superior to a new hired employee coming fresh out of college. This approach would have also shown that GM was loyal to their employees. Instead, GM chose to lay off well qualified and high performance employees that were currently in a "low priority" area at GM. Translation: Ken Kelzer is mistaken in the USA article; GM will not work as a team with the UAW to preserve their jobs as they never did that with their salaried workers.
Age discrimination is real!!!!!! This is so frustrating!
I'm a UAW employee and I'm 87 years old, I refuse to retire, I have nothing better to do.
I find it ironic how all these college grads are well prepared and qualified to participate in engineering related positions, to replace aging talent, yet not one of them are qualified to replace the leadership at the very top, whom, actually may or may not even require a technical skill set, or talent.
Unless, of course, you count the gift of gab and BS a skill set. "I am skilled in the area of lies, manipulation, and bending over to our investors." You will make the perfect CEO. Let's take a campus poll on how many people want open floor layouts. Nearly no one.
"We're doing it anyways!"
It has nothing to do with collage grads being cheaper, I'm sure every single one who will get this job is more qualified than all those people who got the boot.
