Hundreds of workers at General Motor's Lansing Grand River plant will be out of a job soon.

The automaker is eliminating the plant's third shift, which was only added seven months ago.

GM says they're having a hard time getting cars off the lot, because people are buying more trucks and SUVs. So until demand changes, GM is laying off more than 800 workers, but it's also making upgrades at the plant.

FOX 47's Susan El Khoury spoke to employees who are hoping they won't be out of work for long.
