Daewoo Motors, the company best known for hiring students to hock its cars on college campuses across the U.S., left over a thousand line workers in the lurch when it went under back in 2001. GM purchased a majority stake in the dead automaker the following year and created GM Daewoo, a company that’s found a way to pull its own weight by selling vehicles produced in South Korean wearing Chevy bowtie badges.
Fulfilling a commitment made by the company’s management when it originally went under in 2001, GM Daewoo has hired back 1,725 of the laid off line workers, with the remaining few set to return in May.
