 Howard Cooper, retiring Ann Arbor car dealer, gives employees $1,000 for every year they worked for him

Back in April, when Howard Cooper of Ann Arbor, Mich., announced he’d be selling the car dealership he’d owned for 47 years, employees were no doubt relieved to learn that the deal stipulated all 89 of them would keep their jobs. Little did they know that Cooper had a whole lot more in mind.
This week, Cooper, 83, handed out checks to each of his employees amounting to $1,000 for each year they’ve worked at his dealership, Howard Cooper Import Center, AnnArbor.com reports. Some of the gifts will be substantial; Mechanic Bob Jenkins has worked there for 26 years, bookkeeper Sandy Reagan for 46.
“I wanted to thank my employees and that was a way I could do it,” Cooper told AnnArbor.com. “I hope it makes a difference in their lives like they have made in mine.”
In some cases, the checks represent more money than employees have ever had in their bank accounts, according to AnnArbor.com.
