While the selection of Republican Congressman Paul Ryan of Janesville as Speaker of the House of Representatives is certainly newsworthy, I think there’s a story coming out of Janesville that’s not getting the exposure it deserves.
That story is the announcement this week by General Motors that the Janesville production plant will never reopen as a GM vehicle factory.
Although it might have ended long ago for some, the waiting and wondering about the future of Janesville’s General Motors assembly plant is officially over.
The plant won’t reopen as a GM vehicle factory. It won’t be a hive for droves of workers putting out thousands of shiny new cars, trucks or SUVs, as it was for decades.
1 thought on “So Paul Ryan was elected Speaker – I’d rather talk about that GM plant in his hometown that just closed for good!”
Union choice and you want to try to blame Ryan. Typical.
“A tentative agreement between the United Auto Workers and GM would appear to effectively, and permanently, close the Janesville plant, which has been idled since 2009.”
