Claim: GM Used Bailout Money to Outsource Jobs to China

FALSE: A radio spot now running in Ohio accuses General Motors of cutting 15,000 American jobs under Obama's auto bailout to move labor operations to China. "GM did have 14,000 fewer U.S. employees at the end of 2011 than at the end of 2008, but most of those layoffs and buyouts occurred in early 2009, before GM entered bankruptcy," according to the Detroit Free Press[SD1] .
