Yes, the author is a compatriot of Michael Moore. But, that said, he’s a former GM assembly worker who has some very funny stories in his book, Rivethead.
The story is from the Flint Assembly plant, circa the 1980’s (the era when all cars coming off of the Hamtramack assembly line went to either “major repair” or “minor repair”). Make sure you read far enough to see the weirdest “quality” initiative I’ve ever heard of, the “Quality Cat.”
