Was once the world's largest coporation but has been surpassed by Toyota. It has been the victim of stupid labor unions like the UAW that always threaten to strike if they don't get higher pay (even though the average starting salary for a worker just out of high school with no skills is about $25 an hour), healthcare benefits (which they DO get), retirement benefits (which they also get) and 401K. The union has destroyed this once great corporation. GM has been responsible for many job losses in the auto industry, not just in Michigan, but all across the U.S.A. Don't blame the company. Blame the UAW Union. They demand unfair promises from the company that cannot be kept, therefore forcing the company and the auto industry to outsource jobs to Mexico. GM is not so great anymore, thanks to the antiquated and worthless UAW.
General Motors is the largest employer in Michigan, the 2nd largest auto manufacturer and 3rd largest corporation in the world.

A great car company with alot of history. Contrary to popular belief, GM vehicles are not of a lower quality than foreign cars, they were simply mismanaged by greedy CEO's and therefore fell into bankrupcy. At one time one of the biggest companies in America, GM is regaining some popularity due to the fact that alot of foreign cars are currently being recalled. GM provides tens of thousands of jobs across the country and actually remains to be one of the most profitable companies in America.
