Next thing you know the office staff will be demanding a street car to avoid the hassle of driving and traffic

I imagine they'll just keep making them in Mexico.

Somewhat CSB...back before GPS, I was in Hamtramck seeking out a local blues bar.

I had my directions written down, left on this street, right on that....Problem was there were no street signs.

And it wasn't exactly the place to stop and ask directions.

I did eventually find it by pure luck.

I am a GM engineer who currently is enjoying working from home. This announcement was a complete mess. None of the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd line management was aware of this. Supposedly the Friday announcement to employees only happened because the news was going to leak over the weekend. Either way, I can't see who GM can go through with this as described.

In their previous announcements, GM made it seem like WFH was going to be permanent for jobs that supported it. We had a lot of people move out of possible commuting distance. Some people hired in from out of state, while others live in the metro area but outside of a reasonable commuting distance. Anyone can see everyone's profile on the PeopleFinder page on the intranet to see who has "remote" status vs "hybrid" status. Typically someone out of state has remote status while those still local to the metro area have hybrid status.

The current announcement claims that this will not affect remote employees. I can't see how GM can do this without opening itself up to lawsuits. WFH is probably the biggest benefit GM offers and everyone will be able to see would get the WFH benefit and who would not get it. We have a lot of departments where half the team is remote and the other half is hybrid. Currently, the hybrid people might come into the office once every 1-3 months, while the remote people come into the office once or twice a year. I can't see the hybrid people accepting that they will lose WFH because of an arbitrary label.

At least Tesla said "no more WFH for anybody". That seems like a much easier position to defend legally. (I get that this was possibly an effort to force people to leave without spending the money for layoffs.)

When do they start producing products that are not trucks or sports cars, that people want?

The Bolt was nice other than the spontaneous combustion thing.

Everyone says everyone wants [insert thing that isn't a SUV or truck or CUV, so like a regular 4-door sedan] and the sales numbers show that people do not want that.

Your not wrong but I love my wife's accord. Comfy, nimble and faster than my old biatchen Camaro.

I of course have a small truck and am looking at maybe another 4runner in the near future. I'd be ok with a station wagon if they made one like the old ones that could tow.
