Spring Hill Workers, Businesses Worry About Idle General Motors Plant

G. Chambers Williams III from the Tennessean: Another temporary closure of the GM plant here until at least February 9 has spread anxiety among workers and nearby business owners who rely on consumer spending by GM's local workers to bring profits to their stores. "There's a lot of concern throughout the plant and the community," said Rob "Boomer" Lazzara, who retired from the facility in 2006 after 30 years with GM. He now operates a music store in Columbia, Tennessee, just a mile from the facility's south entrance. "Spring Hill has become a very diverse area over the past few years, so we don't depend on GM as much as we once did," Lazzara said. "But even so, if this plant were to close permanently, it would devastate the merchants. For most of us, GM employees and their families are at least 50 percent of our business."
