Here’s Why General Motors Workers Have To Sleep On The Factory Floor

General Motors builds Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick models in Shanghai for the Asian market. Since this week, however, a strict lockdown has been in place in the metropolis to reduce the number of corona cases. The Chinese government is pursuing a so-called Zero-Covid policy and is already taking strong action in a limited number of corona cases.

General Motors asks factory workers to sleep

To get around the lockdown rules, General Motors has done something miraculous. The company has asked the production workers of its car factory not to go home, but to sleep on the factory floor, according to news agency Reuters† This is to keep them in a corona-free bubble, so that the assembly of Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick models can continue.

According to Reuters, several other manufacturers and suppliers opt for the General Motors method and also let their staff sleep in the factory. The Beijing auto show – which was scheduled for next month – has been canceled. BMW would unveil the new 7-series and Mercedes the electric EQS ​​SUV.
