GM to Lay Off 2,000 Workers at Two U.S. Plants Due to Slowing Sales


General Motors Co plans to lay off 2,000 employees at two U.S. auto plants in early 2017, the automaker said on Wednesday.

GM's Lordstown, Ohio and Lansing, Michigan plants build slow-selling cars sold by Chevrolet and Cadillac. GM said it will furlough the employees when it cuts the third shift at both plants in January. (Reporting by Paul Lienert in Detroit)
