DETROIT (WWJ) Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was so taken with the electric Chevy Volt at the recent Washington Auto Show that she just had to see for herself how the car is made.

Monday Solis toured the Detroit- Hamtramck Assembly Plant where GM assembles the rechargeable vehicle and she was impressed with the work being done there.

Solis was joined by Mayor Dave Bing and some members of Michigan’s congressional delegation.

Earlier in the day, she stopped at the Michigan Laborers’ Training and Apprenticeship Institute in Wayne.
