Some good employment news for the Land of Lincoln. 

ChicagoTribune - The automaker, which recently completed a $1 billion renovation of the Torrence Avenue facility on the Southeast Side, will spend $50 million to convert a nearby facility that modified vehicles for police use into a full assembly line to build the Police Interceptor. The facility also will build other lower-volume models such as the Explorer hybrid SUV and the plug-in hybrid Lincoln Aviator SUV.

Ford also plans on investing more money into their oldest continuously running plant in the country and plan to add around 500 more jobs next year.

The hiring is supposed to begin next week. If you know someone that is interested more hiring information can be found here.
