General Motors factory workers are facing yet another round of layoffs.

This time, hundreds of jobs will be cut at the automaker's Chevrolet Cruze plant in Lordstown, Ohio due to declining demand for the Chevy compact in the face of, you guessed it, America's insatiable appetite for crossovers.

According to CNBC, workers were informed Friday afternoon that one of two shifts at the Ohio facility will be eliminated come mid-June. As it stands, the plant employs almost 3,000 people, 90 percent of whom are hourly workers. While GM says up to 1,500 employees will potentially be affected, the precise number of layoffs won't be determined for a few weeks.
