President Obama to Visit Auto Plants in Michigan, Illinois

WASHINGTON–(ENEWSPF)–July 23, 2010.  President Obama will visit Chrysler and General Motors Plants in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan on Friday, July 30 and a Ford plant in Chicago, Illinois on August 5.

Just over a year after President Obama made tough decisions to save Chrysler and GM, these companies are returning to profitability, hiring workers, and keeping plants open. And because of the steps the Administration and Congress have taken with Cash for Clunkers and the Recovery Act, the industry overall is strengthening.

The Hamtramck GM plant is one of nine that GM recently kept open during a scheduled summer shutdown in production.  The Jefferson North Chrysler plant just added a second shift bringing approximately 1,100 jobs to the plant.  The Chicago Ford plant has announced plans to add 1,200 new jobs thanks in part to Department of Energy loan guarantees to invest in clean energy upgrades.
