AUTO JOBS-STATES
(2007-10-08)
(wgvu) - MICHIGAN HAS LOST LOTS OF AUTO JOBS IN THE PAST
FIVE YEARS BUT STILL LEADS THE NATION IN AUTO EMPLOYMENT.
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SAYS ABOUT 181,000 MICHIGAN RESIDENTS NOW
WORK IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY, DOWN 34 PERCENT FROM 275,000 IN 2002.
OHIO WAS SECOND IN AUTO EMPLOYMENT AT 109,000.
ALABAMA'S AUTO EMPLOYMENT ROSE 69 PERCENT IN THE SAME PERIOD TO
30,000.
THE STATE HAD NO AUTO ASSEMBLY PLANTS BEFORE 1997 BUT NOW IS
HOME TO DAIMLER, HONDA AND HYUNDAI PLANTS.
AN EXPERT SAYS THE MAIN REASONS FOR MICHIGAN'S AUTO JOB LOSS ARE
PARTS OUTSOURCING AND GREATER EFFICIENCY BY GENERAL MOTORS, FORD
AND CHRYSLER, AS WELL AS THEIR LOSS OF MARKET SHARE.
