Ford motors has moved to keep production in the United States, nixxing a factory plan in Mexico and creating jobs in the USA.

This news story has gone viral on facebook recently, but it’s over 2 years old. But what’s going on now? Did Ford keep it’s promise?

Well, according to spokespeople, Ford has followed through, but with a Cavaet, they’ve cancelled some production in the US but retained the jobs. They’ve also made big plans to create a major factory in Flatrock Michigan to create their self driving car.

All this can be chalked up to the trade policies of Trump, and changing consumer demand.

The Sedan is growing in popularity as more people quit driving SUV’s and Pickups. The Ford motor company and GM are both changing production to meet these demands. For a long time, SUV’s were the big money makers in the United States. Now younger people, and retirees, want to ditch the pick up and move to sedans due to fuel efficiency and ease of use.

However, as 2019 rolled in, the Ford Ranger got major love from the consumers. This means more overtime hours for plant workers in the midwest to meet the demands of consumers. (LINK)
