What effect do you think the closing of General Motors will have on Janesville or the surrounding area?

Probably the same effect that the area where the Ford assembly plant in Norfolk, Va had. Thousands lost their jobs, hundreds took relocation, many came back due to the miserable treatment from co-workers in the Michigan plant, many took the buy outs, went to school to learn a different trade and so forth. It affects the community more than you will know.
