New manufacturing jobs are always nice to hear about, and this time it's Chrysler providing the headlines. Automotive News reports that the automaker will add a second shift to its Toledo Assembly Complex, which could result in an additional 1,100 jobs.

Chrysler hasn't made an official announcement (since the incentives haven't been finalized), but The Toledo Blade claims that the $365 million investment will lead to 1,050 blue collar workers, with wages starting at $14.65/hour, and another 55 management spots worth about $90,000 each.

Chrysler also hasn't (officially) said a word about what new products are coming to fill the need for a second shift, but analysts have said that up to seven new and redesigned vehicles could make their way to the plant. The Toledo plant expansion will reportedly be ready for prime time sometime in 2013. Currently, both the Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro are built at this facility.

      The more interesting article will be the inevitable "Toledo will see a brief shutdown in order to install new tooling." They're definitely not adding a shift for the current Liberty after all.

      Glad to see more folks getting back to work. Sooo happy that the Obama admin has created these 110,000 jobs. What's that you say? 1,100 not 110,000? Why not... Obama's been faking numbers like that for years! ;)

        Obama administration has nothing to do with this. Marchionne's leadership of Chrysler with new and refreshed vehicles has increased demand. More sales = more jobs.

          Obama picked Marchionne instead of letting Chrysler go out of business

      I'm glad they are hiring more managers. America used to lead the world in unimaginative, pencil-pushing functionaries to generate paperwork and hold meetings. Maybe we'll be back on top soon.

      As much as I despise Obama I think the bailout was an excellent move.

      Wait....they STILL build the Dodge Nitro? Gross. Can't wait to see some more good products from Chrysler, like the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

      But I thought the bailout for Detroit was a complete failure and both Chrysler and GM should have died...

      why is the jeep liberty 1000 times more elegant, mature, and and overall better than the dodge nitro? I'll never understand it

        Proportions and shapes. The more squared off fenders and front end of the liberty is much kinder to the proportions than the round fenders and odd rounded front end of the Nitro. Small differences, but important ones.
