Barra roasted by lawmakers over Mexico investments
“The reason you have excess capacity in the United States is because you’ve built capacity in Mexico.”

On the second day of meetings on Capitol Hill, Barra faced a tough session with normally supportive lawmakers from the state where GM is based and has thousands of workers.

Senator Gary Peters, a Michigan Democrat, questioned why GM was launching production of its new Chevrolet Blazer SUV in Mexico as it was cutting production in the United States and said the company needs to move the vehicle to the United States.

“We did get answers as to some of the decisions that they made. But I think they need to revisit that thought process and understand the importance of making (vehicles) locally,” Peters said. “The reason you have excess capacity in the United States is because you’ve built capacity in Mexico.”


Quote:

Representative Sander Levin, a Michigan Democrat, said GM pays less than $3 an hour at four plants in Mexico, a fraction of what it pays in the United States.

“It’s been very profitable to leave the United States and go to Mexico,” Levin said of GM’s expanded production of trucks and SUVs in Mexico.
