Gutless Motors Can Read the Election Returns

General Motors is switching sides in the legal fight against California’s right to set its own clean-air standards, abandoning the Trump administration as the president’s term nears its close.

CEO Mary Barra said in a letter Monday to environmental groups that GM will no longer support the Trump administration in its defense against a lawsuit over its efforts against California’s standards. And GM is urging other automakers to do the same.

Yeah, it's not as though GM cares for safety, the environment, its workers, quality, or anything else other than looking good in its quarterly reports to the vultures on Wall Street.

This is simply a case of rats leaving a sinking ship.

Having retired from GM I can tell you if you work for them you are nothing but a number. At GM an MBA is much more valuable than an engineering degree. Any of the management I had to deal with were basically yes men who knew how to pass the buck but take credit when things went right. Since I was a hands on hourly worker (UAW) I wasn't going anywhere anyway. But the Peter Principle definitely applied here. Most of the management didn't know the difference between an automotive engineer and the person who ran the choo-choo train.
