In the midst of a labor shortage, General Motors Co. is hiring in droves.

The automaker said Wednesday that it’s hiring for 8,000 new tech jobs after adding 10,000 similarly skilled workers last year. GM needs to add people as the company pushes Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra’s $35 billion plan to build 30 electric vehicles by 2025 and start its Cruise robotaxi business.
