600 GM workers change mind on buyouts, cling to jobs instead
Even with the 600 workers who chose to stay, GM did get over 7,000 employees to accept the buyout package. That brings the total to more than 60,600 total buyouts since 2006. If and when these workers are replaced, GM's latest contracts with the UAW allows it to hire new workers with a starting base pay of $14 per hour, which is about half what current auto workers earn.
