The Nissan Plant, about ~ 9 miles from where we live, has hired an additional 3300 workers to build the Nissan Leaf. First they hired 2500 new workers and trained them and then more recently Nissan hired an additional 800 workers and is in the process of training them. A least 6 people who we go to church with work at the Nissan plant and Steve, a good friend of mine at Church works in Human Resources for Nissan. Starting pay is over $16.00/hour which is really good for Tennessee.

Hi Art:

It is my understanding that the Smyrna manufactures both electric & gasoline powered vehicles. And that the loan is for funding the electic vehicles. And that there are 300 workers on that line.

Is it possible that the additional 3300 you refer to includes those hired for manufacturing gasoline powered vehicles too?

I dunno, Bloomberg sez 300 employees for the electric vehicle line.*
I don't care what comes from Nissan's pocket to fund manufacturing electric vehicles. I do care about what comes from Uncle Sam's pocket or rather the taxpayer's pocket. I'm just trying to get the facts straight here.
