Chrysler workers will be reaping the benefits of the automaker's turnaround. Four years after the Chrysler Group LLC was bailed out by the federal government, the company is awash in profits, reporting a 2012 net income of $1.7 billion, as was reported by AOL Autos.

And the company CEO announced Wednesday it will share the good fortune: Each worker will receive a performance award or profit-sharing check, says the Detroit Free Press.

"There can be no more doubt that our comeback is real," Chrysler CEO and chairman Sergio Marchionne, said in an email to workers, adding that the "credit for our turnaround is yours."
