GM To Create 1,260 Jobs at Wentzville, MO, Plant for Truck Line
Tax incentives from state and city were said to be instrumental in making this project a reality, but details about them are not presently available.
UAW spokesman Joe Ashton said these new products "will provide an opportunity for the plant to be more fully utilized and provide good-paying, middle-class jobs for Wentzville." (The average autoworker in Wentzville reportedly earns $28 per hour.)
"Today we're here to celebrate the future of the American auto industry, and my friends, the future is bright," said Gov Jay Nixon. GM also said it will bring back 400 second-shift workers to the Wentzville plant in January.
