Chrysler Set To Add 2000 New Jobs


Fiat Chrysler said Sunday it would spend $1 billion on U.S. manufacturing, including modernizing plants in Michigan and Ohio, in a move that’s set to add 2,000 new jobs, Reuters reported.
According to the company’s plan, the plant in Warren, Michigan will be made capable of producing a pickup truck currently built in Mexico.
The Warren plant will make the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer large SUVs. A plant in Toledo, Ohio also will get new equipment to make a new Jeep pickup.

Storm Warning In Effect


* A winter storm warning for Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Ocean counties, along with southeastern Burlington County, effective from 3 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. In those areas, the weather service said motorists can expect hazardous driving conditions because of snow-covered roads and poor visibility, as well as the possibility of scattered power outages, especially along the coast, as winds gust to 30 mph.

Tax Increases For NJ Urban Enterprise Zones

Excerpts

For years, New Jersey's Urban Enterprise Zone program has given tax incentives to businesses in dozens of urban areas to boost lagging local economies. Businesses in the designated zones get financial assistance, subsidized unemployment insurance, and energy sales tax exemptions.
They've also been allowed to level only half of the state's sales tax on their products to help attract customers.
But the program expired at the beginning of the year for the five cities that signed on first, in 1986. The state informed the businesses there that they were no longer allowed to offer a 3.5 percent reduced sales tax and were now required to levy the state's full 6.875 percent sales tax. The latter is the new state rate -- down from 7 percent -- which took effect Jan. 1.

Five cities in the Garden State -- Bridgeton, Camden, Newark, Plainfield, and Trenton -- braced for   a sales-tax increase. And similar cities could see the same in coming years if Christie and lawmakers don't come to a compromise regarding the future of a three-decades-old program on the brink of extinction.
