WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- Monday, General Motors revealed its plan to lay off thousands of workers across the country. That includes nearly 3,000 in Northeast Ohio.
Sales for the Chevrolet Cruze -- the car produced at the Lordstown Assembly plant -- are down 25 percent since this time last year. Company spokespeople say that's what led to the decision to close the plant by the end of 2019.
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) frames it differently. "“Ten years ago, taxpayers saved these two companies, General Motors and Chrysler, and this is corporate greed at its worst,” he said.
