Some more good news for the American worker as GM announces they will invest 1 billion and hire an additional 1000 workers. youtu.be...


Also Apple has filed for an application for manufacturing in Arizona. According to the following video China is not happy. youtu.be...


No doubt the Trump haters will find something to hate about the announcements..... after all that is what they do no matter what.

Without jobs America will go no place but further down the economic scale along with all the suffering and socialist ideas that poverty always brings with it.

Edit to add: GM manufacture 4 out of 5 cars overseas ... So some additional production in the states is really not that big of a deal... However, every little bit helps IMO

This is something that I really hope the USA will lead the western world on.

We need to make our own things in our own countries

Why?

Local Jobs meaning our own money goes back into our own economy for reinvestment for the people of our own countries.

Security of supply - if war does break out, and let's be honest - we are on a knife's edge in the global arena, at least we will still have access to all the goods we are used to unless war comes to our shores and directly interrupts it.

Making America great again. One company at a time.

Of course, Apple is unhappy, over here they can't slave wage people(as much) and pollute without full consequences as they get away with already. The pollution in the US for these phone factories (and Wal Mart factories if they were to bring some back), being it's already coming over to the West Coast from China as it is(source).

Lockheed 1800 new jobs for Texas and a lower cost for the F-35 youtu.be...


Old news but I would expect the price to drop by at least 10% if not more. Either way 1800 jobs can feed allot of families and put kids through school.

It's a start but I doubt we'll fully recover. In the mid 90's in Michigan there were jobs everywhere related to tool and die. Anyone with half a brain could get a job making above minimum wage and within a few years make $20 an hour. Starting in 2003 I witnessed a mass exodus of jobs. I watched entire industrial complexes disappear over night. By 2007 it was like a ghost town. I had never seen anything like it. I could see it coming though. One of the companies I worked for started getting dies in with Chinese writing all over the crates. I asked my boss why they had Chinese writing on them and he told me they could have them made in China for 1/10th of the cost. They were junk but it was cheaper just to fix them up. Half of the factories left are still empty. When I drive by some of these industrial complexes there are for sale signs everywhere. It's a different world around here. Some of the factories have rebounded but it's nothing like it was.

You want to know why Michigan voted Trump it's because people are pissed off. I don't blame Obama it all started long before he took office. If Trump don't deliver Michigan will turn on him.

That's good news! I still think that GM should ship those cars overseas! I have tried to work on them, and I would NEVER own one!

Good, the road to recovery is not done over night, its a series of smaller steps to reach the goal.

I expect to continue to see small steps, or his presidency will be a failure, he was brought in because of the economy... he has a different take on it and wants to bring jobs back.

Everything else does not matter... if he does not keep jobs trickling back in... its a failure.

Sounds good, but America won't be great again until GM brings back Pontiac.

Oh wait. The company that the American people BAILED-OUT decided to keep jobs in America? How wonderful! Excuse me if I'm not euphoric about these traitors.

In my opinion, America was at it's best when we went to the Moon.

The progress he has made before even taking office is amazing! I hope that he continues to bring in jobs for the American people! That is how you make American great again!

That would be amazing!!!!! You can buy a new one if your pocketbook is big enough but it isn’t a true Pontiac. I love my ’78 but I would almost kill for one of these!

Ten years ago Warren Buffet was constantly on the "money" shows touting investment in China as he toured various manufacturing plants in China. Those who could, followed suit and invested. Those who couldn't, today, are left with buying absolute garbage. I'd rather pay 50% more for a product that lasts decades, than buy a cheaper product that fails in 1/20th the time as a U.S. product. I bought a hand crank basic can opener about 25 years ago for $2 that I still use. Two years ago I bought one of the high-end hand-crank openers with a plastic knob and soft padded handles. I wanted to treat myself. It cost $15 and broke in three mos. I don't know where the one I bought 25 years ago was manufactured, but I highly doubt it was China.

Interesting perspective. I never thought about that side of it. Yesterday while watching Mad Money I learned that the U.S. has only a single washing machine manufacturer in the U.S. I was shocked.

I think if they (and other companies) start to account for the real cost of Intellectual Property loss (stolen) they might see that manufacturing in the US is more cost competitive than they think.

Maybe talk of tariffs have made these companies start to rethink their short term mind set.

I'm familiar with them. They look a lot better than the Camaro in my opinion, but as you said... they just cost so much. I want Pontiac to come back for real, not just as some special edition collectable Camaro with an aftermarket makeover.

I love Chevrolet and all but they don't have much in the performance niche. That's what Pontiac was for, but they dropped them right at the start of their revival as GM's performance division.

if the other two of the big three would come out with a version of their muscle cars that are almost identical to their counter parts of the 60,s and 70's like Chrysler did with the Challenger. now that would turn U.S performance car market on it's head.

i must correct you on your comment on performance niche. Oldsmobile and Cadillac were the first high performance automobiles that GM made the first was Rocket 88 with the Rocket V-8 in 1949, then followed by Cadillac in 1949.
in 1950 the Rocket 88 with the Fireball 8, won 8 of the 10 NASCAR races that year and is considered to be the first Amercain Made Muscle car.

next Chrysler came into the race of the Big Four if you count AMC (American Motors Corporation), with the C-300 with the first production of the hemi powered luxury cars.

then in 1961 Chevrolet came out the SS package in the Impala, which came with a 425hp 409.

most muscle fanatics if not all agree that in the muscle era it was Olds that started it, followed by Chrysler and it's Direct Connection Ford and in the GM with it's branches in this order Oldsmobile, Chevrolet, Pontiac and Buick.

sure you'll find others that will want to argue with what i posted above, you can look it up if you want. i was alive during the last half of the muscle car era and my father owned and raced at least one of every manufacturer of them. i'm fairly confident in what you'll find.

I believe General Motors was the last of the domestic automakers that was resisting Trump's efforts to shift production back to the US. Good to hear that they've come around.

In the end, it's just a business decision. Trump is going to make it more expensive to import cars produced elsewhere, so the automakers are shifting production back home to compensate.

As for Apple, their phones are already absurdly overpriced by any reasonable measure. Surely they can afford to build them here, using workers that aren't so badly treated that they need to install anti-suicide nets around the factory.
