GM Board Criticized for Slow Reaction to Safety Issues

Even after months of recalls and negative press in the wake of the vehicle safety debacle at General Motors, the GM board remains woefully out of touch and indifferent to the lives affected by their defective vehicles. Unfortunately, this is a glaring example of how safety all too often comes second when corporate executives prioritize profits.

According to a recent article in the New York Times, the board of directors at General Motors is being accused of promoting a culture of silence, specifically designed to keep them oblivious of safety issues. The board has been sharply criticized for its sluggish reaction, even as deaths and car accident injuries continue to mount.

An impressive 45 state attorneys general have joined the federal Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission in investigating General Motors. Furthermore, GM shareholders are suing board members past and present for their failure to fulfill their obligations as board members.
