Full Description:

Michigan’s current automotive labor challenge and opportunity is the subject of this study, the first automotive labor market report produced by CAR’s Program for Automotive Labor and Education (PALE). This program was launched in 2006 with support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and the Mid-Michigan Innovation Team (MMIT)/U.S. Department of Labor Workforce Innovation for Regional Economic Development (WIRED) initiative. PALE’s mission is to connect major automotive firms to educational institutions for the purpose of effectively transmitting labor market information on future employment, occupations, training and educational requirements of the U.S. automotive labor force. Motor vehicle manufacturing firms participating in this study include Chrysler LLC, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation, Honda of America, Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc., Toyota Motor North America, Inc., as well as some of the largest auto suppliers in North America including Robert Bosch LLC, Continental AG, Cooper-Standard Automotive, Denso International America Inc., Johnson Controls, Inc., Siemens VDO Automotive Corporation, Valeo Inc., and Yazaki North America Inc. These companies have agreed to advise PALE and share information on the labor and education topics that are of greatest concern to automotive communities in Michigan and the rest of the United States. This information will be disseminated by CAR for at least one year after the completion of this study. It is hoped that PALE will be able to update this study on an annual basis, through the cooperation of its corporate participants.
