AFord logoutomaker Ford (NYSE:F) first made headlines last year when it struck a four-year labor agreement that added 12,000 new U.S. manufacturing jobs — many of which were brought back home from Mexico, China and Japan. The deal with the United Auto Workers union lowered Ford’s U.S. costs, allowing the large shift to take place.

Just in September, the $6.2 billion investment in new factories helped Ford add 1,200 workers to its Flat Rock plant in Michigan. The facility and new wave of workers will be building the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion — recently named “Green Car of the Year.” This is the first time the car will be built in the U.S., though production of the hybrid versions will remain in Mexico.
