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.
