It was rumored for a few days around Lansing but General Motors has announced they they will temporarily close five factories next month as it tries to reduce a growing inventory of cars.

According to a General Motors spokeswoman, the factories will close anywhere from one to three weeks and this will leave about 10,000 workers termporarily idle or waiting to get back to work.

They have other factories around the US that will also be shut down for a few weeks, but the factory in Lansing will be shut down for two week. The changing in buying of cars by US consumers has made General Motors announce the temporary shut down.
