1,800 New Green Jobs Making Electric Car Batteries

Midland, MI - Vice President Joe Biden and Assistant Secretary of State were in Michigan yesterday to mark the start of construction on an ARRA funded manufacturing plant that will build enough advanced batteries to power 60,000 electric-drive cars. The project will use stimulus money to create as many as 1,000 construction jobs, as well as 800 full time jobs once the facility is up and running. That's good news for Michigan, whose economy has been battered by the collapse of the American auto industry in recent years.
