DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Ford Motor Company announced it will pay bonus checks to their 47-thousand hourly workers totalling more than 413-million dollars in March.

The per-worker check will be approximately 8,800-dollars which tops last year's record of 83-hundred.  The automaker is reporting a pre-tax profit of 8.8-billion dollars in North America for 2013 thanks to strong sales of the F-Series pickup, Fusion sedan, and Escape crossover vehicle.

General Motors and Chrysler are expected to announce profit sharing with their employees in the coming weeks.
