If you thought that the new 2015 Ford F-150 couldn’t get any better, how about the fact that Ford has added 1550 new jobs to its force because of the popular pickup?
A complex aluminum build containing new features and technologies creates a high demand for Ford’s newest F-150 truck. With January sales up 17% from where they were last year, “It is important to get as many of the new vehicles on the road as possible,” said Michael Robinet, managing director of IHS Automotive Consulting.
To aid in this endeavor of faster production, Ford is adding new jobs to four of their American plants: Dearborn Stamping, Dearborn Diversified, Sterling Axle, and Kansas City, Mo. New hires will continue work on F-150 production at the end of March. With the addition of new employees also come wage increases as high as 50% for as many as 500 employees, thanks to Ford’s agreement with United Auto Workers. “This is very exciting news and these additional jobs will have an impact in communities all across our nation,” according to Jimmy Settles UAW vice president and director, National Ford Department
