GM Employee Discount

I’ll preface what I’m about to write by saying that this is a pretty random rant.

I keep seeing these GM Employee Discount commercials.  Quite frankly, I don’t believe a word of it.  First off, the people in the commercial are supposed to be GM employees.  But they’re smiling and seem joyous.  They must be actors.  Honestly, can any GM employee be that happy right now?  The company can’t sell a single truck (its cash cow division) and isn’t selling too many cars either.  GM has had quite a few layoffs, and I can’t imagine the environment in Detroit is very jovial, as portrayed on the commercial.

Second, they say: “In celebration of our 100th year anniversary, we’re (the employees) offering you our discount.”  Really?  So the fact that you’re doing deep discounts on cars and trucks you can’t sell at close to full price has nothing to do with the economy and gas prices?  When you offered the employee discount a couple years ago, was that to celebrate GM’s 98th anniversary?

I know this is probably a sensitive topic to GM employees and some others, and I apologize if I’ve offended anyone.  But after seeing this commercial for the 2,000th time, I had to bring up my feelings.

OK, I’m done.  Continue with what you were doing.
