DETROIT (AP) -- A person briefed on the matter says General Motors will pay more than $189 million in profit-sharing to 48,000 hourly workers and millions more in performance bonuses for salaried employees.
The person says GM factory workers will get more than $4,000 each when payments are made in March.
Bonuses for most salaried workers will be 4 to 16 percent of their base pay. But a small number could get 50 percent. GM is not giving annual pay raises.
GM made $4.2 billion in the first nine months of 2010 and is expected to post a fourth-quarter profit. The company needed a $49.5 billion government bailout to survive a 2009 bankruptcy.
The person, who asked not to be identified because employees have not been notified, says numbers will be announced Monday.

    How can a company show a profit when they still owe the federal government billions of dollars? This is total nonsense!
