This article reports on the increase in automotive manufacturing and how it is powering jobs and helping the economy to improve.
It is reported that the economy is slowly getting better and a significant part of the improvement is related to automobile manufacturing jobs.
An estimated 60,000 auto jobs will be added this year. Although Toyota recently returned to being the world’s largest auto manufacturer, General Motors is not far behind!
And why are the auto manufacturing jobs on the rise in the U.S.? American vehicles have improved quality, features, and are attractively priced! GM’s average autoworkers’ compensation is competitive with others in developed markets.
Furthermore, additional U.S. jobs have been added by Kia, Hyundai, Toyota and Volkswagen as related to their operations in the United States.
The outlook for U.S. auto jobs through 2015 as reported in USA Today (Source: HIS Global Insight; BLS; Car Research) are:
2010 566,400
2011 590,000
2012 650,000
2013 696,400
2014 711,600
2015 756,800
As long as the automotive numbers continue to go up, there will be some enjoyable driving indeed!
