Ford hiring 1,800 to build Escape in Louisville


There’s a new lottery taking place in Louisville this week, and the prize is a possible new job.

Ford Motor Co. is about to hire 1,800 new workers for its Louisville Assembly Plant to produce the new Ford Escape. Applications are being taken at the Kentucky Office for Employment and Training in downtown Louisville starting Thursday and continuing through 5 p.m. EDT next Thursday.

Mayor Greg Fischer’s office says people will be chosen for pre-employment testing through a lottery. To participate in the lottery, applicants must fill out a form provided by the employment office.

Starting pay for the production assembly jobs is $15.51.

The mayor’s office says some of the hires will be made from former Ford workers who were laid off in the past.
