12. I doubt it will help Michigan much

despite hype and celebratory ribbon-cutting ceremonies to come.

This is just GM "insourcing" jobs that they "outsourced" years ago. Most new hires will be offset by a layoff at HP, Compuware, or some other local IT supplier. To some degree, GM will probably be hiring current HP and Compuware employees. So, net zero gain.

I'd get GM will lobby for an increase in H-1B visas to fill some of the seats.

There might be a gain in Michigan employment here, but it won't be 2000 or 1500, nowhere close.
