GM may expand and hire more workers

Posted:

DETROIT (AP) -- Sources say General Motors Co. is adding a shift and more than 650 jobs at its assembly plant in Flint.

The plant builds the heavy-duty Chevrolet and GMC Sierra crew and regular cab trucks and the light-duty Chevrolet Silverado crew and regular cab trucks.

Flint is the birthplace of GM and once was a powerful auto manufacturing town, but its economy and population have steadily declined over the past few decades.  It's about 50 miles northwest of Detroit.
