Ford and the UAW have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract. As part of the deal, Ford announced it will hire 5,750 additional workers in the U.S. The deal also includes $6,000 signing bonuses. But entry-level workers will be hired at around $7 an hour, far less than the average wage for veteran UAW workers.
