Bad news for my hometown and family

General Motors to cut 25,000 jobs
Wagoner wouldn't say which plants are in danger of being closed, but David Cole, chairman of the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich., said the most likely targets are several older plants. Those include facilities in Janesville, Wis.; Doraville, Ga.; Oklahoma City and Pontiac, Mich., he said. The Janesville plant was built in 1919 and the Doraville plant was built in 1947. The other two plants were built in the 1970s.
My dad worked at the plant, and so does my sister and her husband. Actually, there aren't many families in town who don't depend on it.

    Sorry to hear that it will affect your family so directly. That's the problem with being a one-industry town, isn't it?
