Ford to add 2,200 U.S. salaried jobs this year

Detroit Free Press -- Ford is adding 2,200 U.S. salaried jobs this year -- the most white-collar hiring the automaker has done in more than 10 years.

The jobs will be in such areas as product development, manufacturing and information technology. They are full-time Ford jobs with benefits -- not agency or contract workers. Ford ended 2012 with 28,000 salaried workers in North America. Openings will be posted on the Ford Careers website at www.careers.ford.com .

BluWahoo: I'd think they'd still take a while for that to be working.

Hire now and fire later when they introduce their 3D print technology this year. Won't need many employees after that

well, at least they're hiring. Still won't by a Fix Or Repair Daily vehicle, but good for those who found a job there.

Hopefully, that will result in the need for more blue collar workers also.

Yay ford! From the article: "The aggressive borrowing allowed Ford to survive without the same government assistance that the Obama administration provided General Motors and Chrysler in 2009. "Our ability to double our dividend in one year is a testament to our One Ford plan, which has enabled us to maintain a solid balance sheet" and "provide our shareholders with more return on their investment," said Bob Shanks, chief financial officer."

Good for Ford, and America. Unfortunately it will take a lot more jobs than that to solve our economic condition.
