WASHINGTON, Oct 25 (Reuters) - A strike by General Motors will likely cut at least 46,000 jobs from October's nonfarm payrolls, a Labor Department report showed on Friday.
The department’s monthly strike report showed a total of 46,000 General Motors employees were idle during the survey period of the October payrolls count. Striking workers who do not receive a paycheck during the reference for period are treated as unemployed. The government will publish its closely watched employment report for October on Nov. 1.
