Asian automakers give big payouts

Recently we reported on the lack of profit-sharing checks seen by union members working for GM and Ford, and it would seem that Asian automakers might not be such a bad place for autoworkers after all (are you listening, fellow Michiganders?).

Asian automakers are cutting bonus checks anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 for its people on the factory floor. Toyota bonused the best at an average of $10,131 for Camry-makers in its Georgetown, Kentucky plant, while workers in Subaru's Indiana plant brought up the rear at an average bonus of $1,000. GM and Ford did not provide profit sharing bonus checks, while Chrysler's checks averaged out at $1,500.
