Ford to Upgrade 500 Workers to a Higher Pay Bracket

As Ford Motor Co. surpassed the limit of the maximum workers it can hire at a low wage, the company will be moving a few hundred of its hourly workers in the U. S. to a higher pay slab.

On Wednesday Ford said about five hundred workers come under the new transition phase and going from an entry-level wage rate of $19.28 an hour to a higher wage rate of $28.50 an hour in the coming two months. The very first set of workers will be informed in the current week. The most number of workers who will be a part of the new pay plan are those working at the plants of the carmaker located in Chicago, Kentucky, Kansas City, Missouri and Louisville.

Ford has a cap of twenty percent for hiring entry level workers with the minimum wages. And the company will exceed those numbers in this quarter when it hires 1,550 fresh workers for supporting the production of its pickup trucks in Michigan and Kansas City, says Bill Dirksen, the vice president of labour affairs at Ford. Ford employs 50,000 total hourly workers.
