GE Plans to Hire 5,000 U.S. veterans

Posted on February 13, 2012


General Electric Co will invest $580 million to expand its aviation foothold in the US for 2012.

The conglomerate juggernaut released word of its plans today, claiming that their focus is on boosting the American economy. Now the world’s largest maker of jet engines, GE has made plans to open three new US aviation plants in Ellisville, Missippi, Auburn, Alabama, and Dayton, Ohio.

GE has created nearly 9,000 US jobs since 2009, and will continue to hire another 4,500 workers in the immediate future. Such action will help act as an improvement to US unemployment, which has fallen to a near three-year low of 8.3 percent since January.
