Ford Settlement Is Good News for Clay County
Ford’s continued production in its facilities in Claycomo and this one in Liberty help illustration the dramatic impact by the region’s largest employer.

While the recent agreement between Ford and the United Auto Workers is good news for the nation’s economy, it was especially positive for Clay County, the Northland and Greater Kansas City. 

The agreement is expected to mean a $70-million boost to the area’s economy, with much of that focused on Clay County. The plant in Claycomo employs more than 7,500 people, many of whom also live here and buy everything from groceries to professional services. Along with the continued success of the plant’s products, the F-150 pickup truck and Transit van, this is something that will help grow the region’s economy like almost nothing else.

Combined with closure on similar issues at General Motors, the region has passed a potentially dangerous period on a largely positive footing.
