    General Motors has announced that the Arlington, TX plant which makes full-sized SUVs will be working a six-day week through the end of the year. The plant is already working three full shifts and has been adding in Saturdays a couple times per month as needed. This new plant calls for Saturdays every week through the end of 2015.

The Dallas News reports that the Arlington plant's 4,100 workers can produce up to 1,200 SUVs like the Chevy Tahoe, Cadillac Escalade, and GMC Yukon every day. Over the past few years GM has added workers and poured money in to the factory. It is currently undergoing a $1.4 billion upgrade. The Arlington plant has been in operation for 61 years.

You made me stop and think. I checked out GM's sales for the year. Check this out:

Escalade Down 32% YTD

Escalade ESV Down 11%

Tahoe - Down 23%

Suburbann - Down 17%

Yukon XL Down 42%

Yukon Down 14%

I'm going to ask GM your question and follow up. Thanks very much for catching that. I didn't mention sales being up in the story, but it seemed obvious. It sure isn't.
