In this photo provided by Ford, a row of 2010 Ford Explorers move through final assembly at the Louisville, Ky. assembly plant on Thursday Dec. 9, 2010. Ford is the latest U.S. automaker to announce it is hiring again. Ford said Thursday it will add 1,800 workers at a plant in Louisville to build the Escape, the second best-selling small SUV in the U.S. after the Honda CR-V. The automaker is investing $600 million in the plant, which will be shut for a year while new equipment is installed so that Ford can build the Escape on a more fuel efficient car platform. less
