General Motors has decided that displaying Mexican-built crossovers just 3.4 miles from where it is closing a Michigan plant is not a great idea. The promotional display at Comerica Park was set to highlight GM's new vehicles for opening day. The UAW, among others, noted the Blazer is not built in the U.S. GM is closing plants in the U.S. and Canada, and shifting work to lower-cost of labor areas such as China and Mexico in order to keep costs down.
GM has opted to remove the Blazer and replace it with one of the many crossovers the company does assemble in the U.S. In a statement, GM said in part, "American workers contribute significantly to the success of the Chevy Blazer. The Blazer will pump more than a half-billion dollars into the U.S. manufacturing economy each year, helping support thousands of good-paying U.S. Jobs." Comerica Park is about 3 miles from the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant, which GM is leaving "unallocated."

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that GM will layoff as many as 4,000 people white-collar positions today. Dubbed as "Black Monday" by an investment strategist, the cuts that may start today are a result of a low take rate on an employee offered buy-out announced in October.
I can personally attest to the talent lost at the company in the last few years. Most of the people that I had the pleasure of communicating with for the past twenty years at General Motors no longer work for the company. Most received early retirement buyouts and will move on to other roles at other companies. Those cut today won't be so lucky to get that buyout.
