General Motors Co. and the state announced Monday that GM will create 2,000  new jobs in Michigan, beginning with up to 1,500 at a new information technology  innovation center in Warren.

It’s unclear where GM would add the other 500 jobs, but the state says the  innovation center is the first of three projects the company will announce.

GM CEO Suggests Additional $1 Gas Tax

General Motors CEO Dan Akerson said in an interview that the auto industry would be helped more by higher gas taxes than by mandatory increased fuel efficiency.

What do you think?

AMERICAN VOICES:

“Well, if GM’s top leadership is on board, then so am I. They never make woefully self-interested, shortsighted, or commercially unsuccessful decisions.”

“Good for him. If the auto industry needs something, they need to stop being so shy about asking for help and speak right up. We’re not mind readers.”

Hari Uthup

He brings up a good point. No one gives a shit about the environment anymore. Let’s move on.”

personal thought:

I’m saddened to learn Ms Martinez lost her job as a ‘Gang Sawyer’; I wish her well.
