Posted on March 22, 2012

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on Volkswagen’s announcement that it will create 800 new jobs at its plant in Chattanooga:

“This good news demonstrates once again that Volkswagen and Chattanooga are the ideal marriage – a popular, well-made car built in a state with a good, central location with first-rate four-lane highways, a right-to-work law, and a strong Chattanoogan workforce. It’s no wonder that Volkswagen has not only thrived but is growing, so I congratulate its workers and the Chattanooga area on these great new jobs coming to town.”
