Ford to add thousands of new jobs

(CNN) - The struggling U.S. auto industry is showing it is getting back on its feet.

Ford says it will add more than 7,000 new American jobs by the end of 2012.

That number includes 6,500 jobs at plants across the country and about 750 engineering jobs.

It's Ford's first new hires in a decade, but still only replaces some of the jobs lost during the recession.
