Why the Interest in GM’s Job Bank?


Lean Manufacturing Blog: GM Jobs bank programs — 12,000 paid not to work

I know it's kind of weird to link to my own post, but I saw the traffic logs and I had HUNDREDS of visits to this page today. Lots of people were searching google about GM's jobs bank and the “12,000” number. Why is that? Was something about that in the news separately today?

  1. Heard a caller on the Rush Limbaugh radio show call in and discuss it. He seemed really knowledgeable about it and said to ‘google’ this article.

  2. Rush’s guest host for yesterday talked about it quite a bit.

    I guess the “largest radio audience” must have been hunting down the information in google.

    Particularly since conservatism would equate this program directly to socialism.
