|New tariffs could affect some auto workers in the ol’ USA
Threatened tariffs on imported vehicles and auto parts could affect thousands of workers in the Dallas area, automakers warn. GM employs 4,000 at its Arlington plant. The tariffs could lead to a smaller GM, the automaker told the Commerce Department. Meanwhile, Toyota is having to convince the government that its employees are not terrorists after the Commerce Department asked whether imported cars pose a national security threat. Toyota opened a North American headquarters in Plano last year, employing thousands. Even Republican Governor of Texas Greg Abbott is asking the President to reconsider tariffs on steel and aluminum.
