DETROIT -

Detroit's Big Three automakers are about to embark on a hiring binge, according to a report from the Center for Automotive Research.

The center predicts that Ford, General Motors and Chrysler will add about 33,000 jobs in Michigan between now and 2015. Of those jobs, 12,000 will be salaried workers.

The center also said suppliers could hire as many as 150,000 new workers to meet demand.

By 2015, the Big Three will have two-thirds of their workforce in Michigan.
