This is really kind of fascinating. They want folks to leave so they can save money, and the money they save is going to be spent to accelerate their EV programs? !

and the world is only at 2% EV's (that the last count i saw)
i cant help but think, some where in GM head quarters; in some room in the back, where the sun never shines, a lonely light bulb turned on, in some ones head and spurted out the words " i have a plan ":)
what was the name of the gal that took over the electrical side ?

They know that the business is cyclical and are prepping for the rain day's ahead. They are at a high point now, eventually sales will go down.

Interesting, 1/3 of the salaried workers have 12 years or more experience. Like football, must be a young person's game.

They have been hiring people on the EV and autonomous side. Cruise keeps growing, for example. The people they want to leave are more senior employees not trained in those disciplines.

Evs and Avs are the future. The Volt and Bolt were not to sell as much as to not be left behind.

Maybe GM should look at Chevy "marketing". If it's not a truck, the dinosaurs there don't know what do do with it. While EV's and AV's are the future, today the Volt and Bolt don't exist as far as the "marketing" department is concerned.

Engineers, factory, service support people are what contribute to making money. Paper pushers (a necessary evil) are the drag on those profits and that includes middle managers. That's were you look at cutting costs. Also older workers are usually make more for doing that same work it makes sense to get rid of them first before they build up a lot of pension benefits. That works the same in other industries such as computer gaming companies etc. especially the newer start ups as opposed the bigger older ones like Microsoft and the like.
