Higher sales from the government's Cash for Clunkers program have prompted General Motors Co. to boost production at several of its factories, according to company and union officials. The increases include an extra day of work at the Lordstown, Ohio, assembly plant and increased hours at a factory in Orion Township, Michigan, the union officials said before and official announcement Tuesday. The Lordstown plant, which makes the Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 small cars, is now running at one shift for 10 hours per day from Monday through Thursday, but the company will add the next two Fridays to the schedule, one union official said.
