      GM to add 2,000 jobs in Michigan

      Good news. General Motors is bringing jobs to Michigan. Big time.

      Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says GM and the state are expected to announce today the company will create 2,000 new jobs in Michigan. 1,500 would be at a new information technology innovation center in Warren.It's unclear where GM would add the other 500 jobs, but the state says the innovation center is the first of three projects the company will announce.

      GM will invest $300 million combined for the three. The state said GM plans no major investment spending on the information technology center; it will be housed in an existing building undergoing renovation on the Warren Tech Center campus.

      30 percent or more of those 1,500 hires could be recent college graduates, as GM plans a large recruiting initiative with southeastern Michigan colleges and universities.
