The supply chain will be messed up for at least another 2-3 years

That’s unfortunate. Hopefully the supply chain mess can get cleared up going into next year and we’ll start to see less of this stuff.

And 1500 series Silverado and Sierra models are jammed into vacant areas throughout the Fort Wayne area, too.

Sometimes junkies just run out of junk. Sometime the people in charge just don't understand that they are making the wrong decisions. I read this somewhere...

So while GM is shipping less fuel-efficient pickups, Tesla has been writing software to keep the production lines rolling.

Does anybody remember hearing people talk about this reliance on pickup trucks before 2009? I do.

FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - The global microchip shortage continues to affect Mid-Michigan auto workers.

General Motors announced it will extend layoffs at Flint Engine Operations for another two weeks. The automaker says adjustments to production schedules at assembly plants is the reason for the extension.

That means the layoffs will continue for the weeks of Oct. 18 and 25. Some workers may be called back on an individual basis a little earlier.

This fall, GM announced layoffs at most of its North American plants as the company struggles to get enough computer chips to keep up with demand.

Acres of fields and parking lots in Genesee County are filled with hundreds of heavy duty Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks assembled in Flint that are waiting for microchips before they can be shipped to dealers.
