The city of Detroit is embarking on an ambitious plan to prepare at least 10,000 residents for jobs at Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s expanding Jeep plant on the city’s east side.
As part of a deal with the city, Fiat Chrysler is giving Detroiters the first shot at 4,950 jobs that pay an average of $19.50 an hour.
So far, more than 9,000 Detroiters have attended one of more than 200 job readiness events handled by Detroit at Work, an employment agency that helps train residents and connect them to jobs. The events offer a range of services, from help completing the application to tutoring for math and mechanical reasoning tests.
