Tough years make you tougher.

I was with GM through some of its toughest years. They were divesting themselves of all the manufacturing facilities other than Automotive Manufacturing. Wall Street demanded the concentrate on their core business. As you well know they even spun off parts manufacturing. I felt the stress, but was mostly unaffected by it.
I did have to work in several different plants, as plants closed, I had to move on. I understood many of the plant closings. Many of these plants had been around since the early 20th century.
Modern manufacturing had shown us the way to improve manufacturing. The proof, GM is building more cars with less people.
Sometimes Change can be exciting.
Sometimes Change can be disruptive.
