DETROIT (AP) - Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder plans to talk about a partnership between a Detroit-based social and economic services agency and manufacturing assembly company.
Snyder is scheduled to be among the speakers Monday morning at Focus: HOPE. The nonprofit founded in 1968 after the Detroit riots has teamed up with Auburn Hills-based Android Industries to assemble parts for the Chevrolet Volt.
Workers mostly from Detroit have been hired by Focus: HOPE for manufacturing positions at Android Industries, which leases manufacturing space at the nonprofit.
Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel says the governor sees this as an illustration of why a talented workforce is important and underscores the value of public-private partnerships.
Snyder is expected to introduce his jobs development plan in November as 1 of his "messages" to the state Legislature.
