    GM Creates more Taxpayers

    Yes right here in America. Taxpayers pay Federal Income Tax, Social Security taxes & Medicare taxes, State and Local taxes.

    DETROIT (AP) -- A new four-year contract deal between the United Auto Workers and General Motors Co. will add or keep 6,400 jobs in the U.S. with a $2.5 billion investment, the union said Tuesday.

    Union leaders from around the country were briefed on the deal in Detroit in a morning meeting, and they voted to recommend that GM's 48,500 factory workers ratify it in voting that will take place in the next week.

    The deal creates over 5,100 new jobs.

    The union said that under the deal, GM has agreed to create or keep the jobs and invest in its factories, including the reopening of an assembly plant in Spring Hill, Tenn. Union-company teams also are identifying 760 more potential jobs and 1,400 more jobs for UAW-represented GM suppliers, officials said at a news conference.

    The Spring Hill plant will make two midsize cars, according to a summary of the agreement released by the UAW. The work originally was slated for Mexico, the union said.

    GM will invest $61 million for one of the cars and add 600 jobs, while it will spend $358 million on the other car with 1,100 jobs created.

      Good news. The UAW and GM are doing the right thing for American Workers and help boost the economy.

    • Every GM employe should think of themselves as just ahother welfare reciepent on the dole. 95% of the rest of the country does.
      GM is a burden on American society where the Real workers in this countryare required to support a bunch of losers,
      GM needs to Die.

    • "Union-company teams also are identifying 760 more potential jobs [....]"

      When the news is worded like that, you know you've being totally LIED TO.

      "Potential jobs"? Sorry, but I don't buy that one. They mean jobs that will be created overseas, and domestic managers will have to bid to get them here, which will fail, since we're too expensive.

    • Not your best cut and paste Jeye.

      "will add or keep 6,400 jobs in the U.S."

      That is the Obama administration way of trying to say they created jobs. So the fact that Government Motors is saying it this way is no surprise.

      Remember the Obama stimulus? All the "jobs created" were a guess that came about from "well we think that these jobs would have been lost so therefore we created a bunch of jobs as a result". This alleged saving of jobs all while unemployment continues to rise does NOT equate to creating jobs.

      Wake up and see what it is happening, don't just accept what the UAW tells you to believe.

    • you dont do more hire because union force you into corner. you hire if there is demand. this is very very bad. too bad, you are too blind to see it.
