General Motors and the United Auto Workers say they have reached a deal that could cut in half the hourly wage of some workers at one Michigan factory.

The deal at the plant in Orion Township near Detroit is part of a plan to help GM build profitable compact and subcompact cars in the U.S.

The deal was revealed Thursday as GM announced that it would build a new compact Buick at the factory. The plant already is being retooled to build the Chevrolet Aveo subcompact.

Under the plan, 40 percent of the plant's workers could be paid around $15 an hour. The rest will make top UAW wages of around $29 an hour. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
