Did the world enter the next car collision? According to behavior, one of the biggest car makers in America could be that. General Motors, which was in the fall of 2009 on the verge of collapse, left no opportunity, and prepared everything to work as it did. According to the latest report, the company expects a general decline in the economy. The problem is Donald Trump's actions, which disrupt the business environment. This is why car manufacturers think or do not touch import duties to import their cars to other countries.
The war does not end. One reason is the plan to rebuild the entire company. General Motors wants to gradually move to the production of hybrid vehicles, which is also a stopover for electric cars. Plans such as layoffs and salaries can increase the company's current capital of $ 6 billion per year. The cost will decrease by 4.5 billion a year.
Similar steps were taken by Ford at the beginning of the year. As far as salary reduction is concerned, they must go down 15 % for ordinary employees. For managers, the decline must be higher. Estimates must be 25%. Production in three assembly plants and two motorbikes will also stop. Every product that has been assembled at an assembly plant in Lordstowne, Detroit and Oshawe will stop production at the end of this year.
As a result, this is a vehicle Chevrolet Cruze. Chevrolet Impala sedan and Cadillac CT6. These steps will affect almost 15,000 workers. Everything also has a positive side, car makers plan to strengthen other areas. Of course, this concerns electromobiles and autonomous vehicles. It is planned to double the number of engineers by 2020.
"We have begun to take these steps today because the economy is strong enough to remain at the top of a rapidly changing market. We are responding to new growth opportunities because we want to contribute to the world without accidents, emissions and abundance." said the chairman and director of General Motors Mary Barra. General Motors has undergone major changes in recent years. This eliminates programs that spend a lot of money. An example is the Opel brand in Europe.
