(Newser) – General Motors will hand out profit-sharing checks totaling $189 million this year, or more than $4,000 per worker, the company announced today. That more than doubles the automaker’s previous record of $1,775, set in 2000, according to the New York Times. The payout will be less than the $5,000 Ford’s workers are getting, but the Ford figure includes a bonus, while the GM figure is “strictly what it would have generated under the agreement” it has with the UAW, a spokesman said. As one worker said, “Just the fact that we’re seeing a profit-sharing check, that’s great stuff.” (Read more General Motors stories.)
