    This is great news.  Now admittedly it's a small step.  But I feel like it's one small step for us and one giant step forward.  We need to get our manufacturing jobs back and we need to work towards policies that will make us an attractive place for that.  That doesn't mean gutting the environmental and labor laws like Republicans always scream about (we might as well give up) but creating policies that will bring jobs here.  In doing this, we ought to reward companies like this with tax breaks.  Tax breaks not for being a company and not in the hope of creating jobs here but tax breaks for companies that put jobs here (the jobs we want anyway).

    I say Kudos to Detroit!

      they could encourage other manufacturers to follow suit; with the volatility of energy prices, it might end up cheaper for some companies to have the manufacturing done here rather than pay the money to ship finished goods from overseas.
