GM brings 1,000 jobs

A bit of good news coming to Lansing Delta Township, as GM will bring in 1,000 jobs at the assembly plant. This will ramp up the plant to three shifts Monday through Friday. Maybe GM knows something about the economy and maybe it’s good? Either way it’s an aggressive move that will add to the local economy immediately!

From the Detroit News:

Regardless, the hiring of up to 1,000 workers for a late-night shift has created a minor boom in an area long battered by plant closings and job losses. The addition of a third shift in April will include 483 transplants from GM’s Spring Hill, Tenn., assembly plant, which ended production in November.
