Temporary Layoffs at GM as Volt Production Put on Hold

"General Motors has told 1,300 employees at its Detroit Hamtramck that they will be temporarily laid off for five weeks as the company halts production of the Chevrolet Volt and its European counterpart, the Opel Ampera.

“Even with sales up in February over January, we are still seeking to align our production with demand,” said GM spokesman Chris Lee." [Detroit Free Press]

The Whitehouse is either going to spin this like a top, OR remain silent. [clipper]
