Ingham County, Mich. -- (WLNS) General Motors has hired dozens of "new" full time workers as demand ramps up for new cars.
Local union leaders say they haven't seen the company hire like this in more than a decade.
Seventy full-time employees have been hired into entry level positions. It's fueling optimism in the plant and at the dealerships.
Things are looking up for people who make their living off General Motors. More shiny new cars are rolling off the lot. There's quite a difference from nearly three years ago when the automaker filed for bankruptcy protection.
"It's night and day. Back then we were nervous whether GM would be around, whether us as a dealership would be around, we didn't know who they were going to close, who they were going to leave open, and to go from that and lack of sales, to now where GM and Chevrolet in particular are on top is just fantastic," said Matt Sloan, General Manager at Hank Graff Chevrolet.
"The popularity of crossover vehicles, like this, GM's Chevy Traverse, are fueling new opportunities at the automaker's Delta Township Plant," said Sloan.
"The last time they hired like this, for me was way back in the 80's when I got hired, I believe and I believe they had some hiring in the 90's but, yeah, it's a good sign," said Kevin Baker, Vice President, UAW Local 602.
It's a good sign for a company that had to downsize by the thousands.
The newly hired workers will make more than 15 dollars an hour, much less than those before them, but union leaders are optimistic about the opportunities that lie ahead.
"It seems to be the way of the world any more, the wages have been going down, but as the company gets healthy and more car sales and we bring more work back to America I think that we'll see wages pick back up here in the country," said Baker.
"The product that they have out right now, is wonderful, everybody's in a good mood, we're happy. And selling lots of vehicles."
General Motors will announce its February sales numbers Wednesday.
