GM ramps up.

   From today's Business Today section:


- GM raising output at three factories to meet increased vehicle demand  
    ... GM will not hire new workers to staff the additional shifts. Instead, the company generally will first offer the jobs to workers at the plants that will be closed. After that, they will be offered to workers in the region and then across the nation, he said. GM, under its contract with the United Auto Workers union, will pay to move workers from other cities... [GM press release]

   This is, of course, really big news in:
- Fort Wayne: GM adds 700 jobs here
- Lansing: GM plans to call back 3rd shift in April 2010 [where they've got a share of bad news].
- Kansas City: A third shift and 945 new jobs coming to GM Fairfax plant in KCK
   [This from the Kansas City - Missouri - Star. I can't show you the front page of the Kansas City - Kansas - Kansan, because it's gone Web only.]
