|As reported by The Detroit Free Press, despite the country's economic state, things are looking up for Chrysler as they announced 1,100 new jobs at their Toledo Assembly:|
The Auburn Hills automaker is planning to invest about $365 million at its Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro SUV plant, city documents show. Experts say the investment is for the next-generation Liberty based on a Fiat platform. However, the plans depend on the approval of tax incentives by Toledo and two school districts.
"This project is ... going to put many of the parents of our students to work," said Bob Vasquez, board president for Toledo Public Schools, who will vote on the tax proposal Tuesday.
The new jobs would bring the total of future manufacturing jobs announced this year by General Motors, Ford and Chrysler to more than 11,100.
