Stories we like to hear
Those are all good to hear, of course, but here's another one we in Michigan need to hear more: Profit-sharing for autoworkers. That's a big boost to local economies, businesses that rely on people spending extra money.
Ford reported earnings that will allow it to spend $380 million on its employees, not too much considering the billions earned. However, it is a boost to local communities.
Nearly 46,000 employees are to receive $8,300 in profit-sharing bonuses. That's some great news and a good start to a sustained recovery. Too bad, though, we're still talking about recovery.
