So the company that Dh works for has been losing money. And a few months ago they did a 2% pay cut across the board, even the CEO's got a pay cut. Well they started making money again and didn't tell anyone they were putting money aside for the employees. They told them yesterday they were all getting bonus checks today, but didn't say how much. We really were only expecting like 100$. but he got his check today and it was over 500$!!!! He's a cook there so he makes min wage. The bonus was bigger than his normal checks! I almost cried. I just can't beleive the company did this for everyone it's so amazing. It's a shame that more companies won't be doing the same though.. Not sure there's a question here but I'm just so amazed and relieved.

  • That is awesome. And I have to agree- I wish more companies would do things like this for their employees instead of screwing them over like they usually do! It's good to hear that someone somewhere actually works for good people!
