It is not every day that you hear good news about employment in Michigan.  Today, that has changed.  Ford has announced plans for a 1.6 billion dollar plant in Mexico to be scraped, instead the Automaker says that they will expand the Flat Rock Michigan Assembly Plant and by doing so add 700 jobs.

The expansion of the plant in Flat Rock will allow for the production of high-tec electrified and autonomous vehicles.

Now that the giant automaker has announced those plans, hopefully many more businesses will follow suit.
