GM CEO Mary Barra Fires 15 Employees

WARREN, Mich. (AP) — General Motors CEO Mary Barra says 15 employees have been fired over the company’s recent ignition switch recalls.

Barra made the announcement as she released an internal investigation into the recall of 2.6 million older small cars for defective ignition switches.

She described the report as “brutally tough and deeply troubling.” It took GM more than a decade to report the switch failures, which it blames for 13 deaths.
