About 4,000 General Motors workers are about to lose their jobs — layoffs start Monday.

They’re part of a 15 percent reduction in white collar jobs in North America.

The car company first announced the reduction back in November, along with plans to close four U.S. plants and one in Canada.

It’s all part of ongoing cost reductions to free up $6 billion a year to invest in new car technology like electric and self-driving vehicles.

GM is going to report financial results wednesday and lower earnings are expected.
