LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Ford workers in Louisville and across North America will get a little extra cash from the automaker.
Ford is paying out record profit-sharing checks to United Auto Workers after it posted record profits. About 47,000 hourly workers will get checks for about $8,800.
Ford agreed to the more generous profit-sharing in the most recent labor agreement with the UAW.
Ford's full year net income was the strongest in more than a decade.
