DETROIT (WWJ) – General Motors and the State of Michigan are expected to announce details on 2,000 new hi-tech jobs being created by GM in Michigan, with 1,500 of them coming to the Warren Tech Center.
GM is out to bring more of its information technology operations in-house. Right now, most of the company’s IT is handled outside the automaker. To that end, GM is spending $300 million on new IT innovation centers in Warren and in Austin, Texas.
About a third of the 1,500 jobs in Michigan may be made up of recent college graduates. The governor is happy about the new developments, seeing how it will make Michigan a bigger player in hi-tech, keep younger workers from moving away and even attract younger workers to the state.
