It's official. NUMMI to close

Toyota’s Board officially decided to end production at NUMMI in March 2010 this morning.

This is an absolutely huge blow for the East Bay and Northern San Joaquin Valley, and will come just as job growth was expected to resume again in the region.

Although, I question the 50,000 job claim in the previous post, the impacts are still very, very large.
