GM to Add Second Shift and More Than 400 Hourly Jobs at Bowling Green (Ky.) Assembly Plant
Bowling Green, Ky. General Motors is adding a second shift and more than 400 hourly jobs at its Bowling Green (Kentucky) Assembly plant to support production of the Next Generation Corvette, which will be revealed on July 18, 2019.
The addition of the second shift will increase the plants workforce to more than 1,300.
The Corvettes iconic status owes so much to the men and women of Bowling Green, where it has been built exclusively for almost 40 years, said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra. This is the workforce that can deliver a next generation Corvette worthy of both its historic past and an equally exciting future, and todays announcement gets us one step closer to its reveal on July 18.
Since 2011, GM has invested more than $900 million into Bowling Green. This includes investments towards a new body shop, increased engine capacity, new paint shop, a new Performance Build Center, and additional plant upgrades.
Not good enough folks.
Are Democrats not the party of labor??? What the hell are you cheering for here?
