More bad news for Ohio’s workers: I just heard on CNN that GM is going to close its assembly plant in Moraine, Ohio. The plant currently employs 2,500 workers and makes trucks and SUVs.
GM also announced that they will be adding a third shift to the Lordstown plant that makes the Cobalt.
High gas prices have decreased demand for trucks and increased demand for more efficient compact cars like the Cobalt. That, I suppose, is some good news for the people in Lordstown and for the environment.
Now if only we had a Casino in Ohio we could save money on gas and put some of these people back to work dealing cards.
