ABC News -- General Motors Co. will open a new information technology innovation center in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler and begin hiring what will eventually be 1,000 high-tech employees for the new location beginning in April, the automaker announced Wednesday.

The Chandler center will be the fourth facility GM has opened to bring its IT work in-house. It already has hired more than 1,000 new employees at the three other locations: Austin, Texas; Roswell, Ga.; and Warren, Mich.

Just speculation on my part: Are the auto makers abandoning Detroit? Detroit's population is now 700,000. "Would the last person leaving Detroit please turn the lights off?"

They need to hire some engineers that can design a car that holds up and can be repaired without thousands dollars of special tools.

It still doesn't do much for the folks who nee work in Detroit. The folks that Pres. Obama still promises jobs to replace what GM walked out on them on.
At least 30% of the city has been bulldozed, large parts have been condemned and shutdown.
The new center is great news for Phoenix as Detroit continues its slide into the underbelly of Lake Michigan also thanks to Pres. Obama.
