Meet the New GM, Same as the Old GM

From the WSJ this photo is captioned "Workers took down a sign after a speech by GM CEO Fritz Henderson in New York Monday." In the speech, Henderson promised that GM will be 'leaner and quicker'. I'm no sign removal expert, but I see three workers in that picture (two faces, one set of hands behind sign), and I'm thinking they could have done that job with at most two workers.

I expect that the two guys in the lower right of the photo are the workers supervisors or union reps for the job. So five in total. Money well spent.
