38. Agreed, a $1000 bonus is chump change

One, louis c is absolutely right. A $1000 bonus is chump change.

The most important point is the tiny percentage of corporations that are boosting pay in any way.

I work for a major retailer and there has been nothing. Crickets.

This from a company that as a matter of corporate policy floods the sale floor with straight commission sales personnel so earnings per sales person have dropped substantially in the last few years. This during a time when profits have soared.

This is what is happening with most companies. If anything a bonus—which is purely temporary. Or nothing at all.
