In recent months virtually every major automaker has been turning up the wick on their factories that build small cars to try and keep up with soaring demand in one of the few growth segments in the U.S. market. At plants building the Ford Focus
and Chevy Cobalt
, overtime has been the order of the day. However, GM
has had to cancel plans for two production shifts this weekend at the Lordstown, OH plant that builds the Cobalt
and Pontiac G5
. Apparently, parts suppliers haven't been able to provide enough of the bits needed to put together a complete car so, Lordstown employees will get this weekend off.
