Help for the Automotive Industry

Dearborn, Michigan - As we all know the automotive industry is severely struggling in today’s difficult society. According to “A plea by struggling auto parts makers for $8 billion to $10 billion in additional federal loan guarantees was turned down by the Obama administration's auto task force last week.” CNN Money also states that “Widespread bankruptcies and shutdowns at suppliers could affect not only efforts to restart assembly lines at GM and Chrysler, but could spread to Ford Motor and the North American plants of Asian rivals such as Toyota Motor and Honda.”

What people don’t know is that there is help out there.

A Purposed Transition presents “Retooling the Automotive Industry Career Transition and Entrepreneurial Workshop Series.” Their motto is A New Focus. A New Direction. A New You. The purpose of these series of workshops is to give those recently downsized or affected by the GM bankruptcy a helping hand because of the downfall in the automotive industry and share with them key tips and strategies to assist them in securing a successful future through career transition and entrepreneurial exploration.

Last night on the 10 o'clock news you mentioned that a Magna plant would be built and aprox. 1000 construction jobs would be created. Can you please send me info on who to contact for these construction jobs. Thanks!

The Obama administration needs to get their head out of the sand and create some jobs for our people. When asked about high unemployment, the answer shouldn't be skirted.
