Check this: Lansing manufacturer--Demmer Corp.--is starting to look for 750 workers

The news about the Demmer Corp. in Lansing looking for 750 workers for new manufacturing jobs is bittersweet. 

For mid-Michigan, the sweet part is simple.  Lansing and nearby townships have been hubs for manufacturing for decades.  Car assembly, including Oldsmobile and other GM models, has been as much a part of the landscape as the State Capitol and Michigan State University.

Then the auto industry started its death dive and local manufacturing jobs were eliminated by the hundreds.

The addition of 750 manufacturing jobs for everybody from welders to secretaries is welcomed news. And the pay is decent.

The bitter part is that the jobs are to make armor for light-duty military vehicles.  It's war related. 

Still it's work.
