Detroit

Mapa
  • Detroit and the surrounding region are a powerful manufacturing nucleus and the city is home to the three North American automotive industry giants: General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler.
  • The city is an important world trade center; major international companies have their offices in both Detroit and Windsor.
  • Approximately eighty thousand people work in the center of Detroit. There are hundreds of offices and plants related to articles used in the making of automobiles: parts, electronics, and design suppliers.
  • The domestic car industry contributes directly and indirectly with one of every ten jobs in the United States.
  • The area is also an important source of job opportunities in engineering. A study by the Border Transport Society in 2004 showed that 150,000 jobs in the Windsor-Detroit region and thirteen billion dollars in annual production depend on the city's international border crossing.
  • With its dependence on the automotive industry, the Detroit area is more vulnerable to economic cycles than most large cities. A rise in car manufacturing that uses robot technology, cheap labor in other parts of the world, and an increase in competition, have led to a transformation in certain job types in the regions.
  • In 2012 unemployment was officially 18.1% (although local authorities admit that this figure is deflated and that the real unemployment rate reaches 50%).
