In mid-February, General Motors (GM) announced that they would close their Gusan assembly plant in South Korea. Around 2,000 workers will lose their jobs. The GM representative, Barry Engle, then proceeded to state that they would also evaluate the remaining three Korean manufacturing plants over the next few weeks. These three other factories employ a total of 16,000 workers. There is mounting anger and protests by Korean workers at these decisions. Once again, companies put profits above workers’ lives as they scour the world for the cheapest costs and highest profits.
