Ryan, Brown, decry GM plans for Mexican expansion as 1200 are laid off in Lordstown

WASHINGTON — Some of the Mahoning Valley’s elected officials are speaking out against General Motors’ decision to build its Chevrolet Blazer in Mexico, an announcement made as the GM Lordstown plant laid off about 1,200 workers.

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Howland, D-13th, today decried the decision and shared a letter he sent to GM CEO Mary Barra.

“So much for the Republican tax giveaway being an incentive for corporations to invest in America,” Ryan said. “This decision is an insult to hard-working families all across the country. Thousands of GM workers in America – including the second and third shifts at Lordstown – who have been permanently laid off – are hearing the news that GM is sending jobs to Mexico instead of putting people back to work here. It’s outrageous.”

3. Tim Ryan and Sherrod Brown

fight for working people in Ohio tirelessly, yet are roundly criticized and dismissed by GOPers in this area just because they have a D behind their names and never praise Der Leader. It's sickening.

5. Yes. Both.

I particularly love Sherrod. The guy is tireless. Ryan I don't see as much, maybe I do and I'm not putting it together. I see RYAN and I think of Count Dracula w the widows peak I guess. Unfortunate name to have these days in politics.

6. We loaned GM billions in the bail-out.

And this is how they show their appreciation.

But they get away with paying the Mexican workers $4 an hour so I don't know how we can compete with that

7. More running away from this country

For profits , like trump does in china, and for escape from trump's trying to shake them down for money, or else results they know is coming from him to hurt them with.
