I say cut the bonuses and hire more employees! This will help our economy more than anything else by getting the unemployed jobs. They could afford to live in a home with their families again which will help the housing problem. Instead of the rich get richer and poor stay homeless! Glad that companies are doing well but they need to think about those they laid off! There is plenty to share! Bottoom line...this is disappointing news. Not much different from 2008 where the banks handed out huge bonuses with our stimilus money!
Yes, if Hollywood elitists (actors, directors, producers, etc.) would only give part of their millions earned for each movie, then the world would be a better place. Hollywood liberals and their whining opinions would be insignificant if they weren't so darn rich. Same thing with athletic bad boys who crash and burn they have so much money to spare. As for me, I'm giving neither of the two any of my hard-earned money. Let THEM eat cake.
I am not mad at any of these CEOs. I only wish that many of us were able to make the same thing and then see what we would do with the cash. Sometimes it is easy to tell others what to do with their money but it is all together a different story when we get the chance to really help someone. Then again, do the same people need help all the time. Let's finds ways to help people help themself. I barely do okay on my salary but I still try to help people. If you can not help others when you are down you will never be able to help others when you are up.
They keep taking wnd when the company is in trouble the run to us to bail them out and then they start taking again.
oracle, nike, heinze, et. al. can go straight to hell before i purchase their product again.
they should be held directly liable and responsible, sans insurance of ANY sort, if their respective company does not produce double the profit in each and every following year, and if not, every penny of every bonus they have EVER received should be taken from them.
6.5 million bonuses ?? sickening to my stomach . It makes hard working people sick. No one should get 6 million dollars bonuses , no one.
Trickle down as diffined by a CEO. Make my bonus, when I die spread it to my hires. They will invest it and not work..because $10 million at 5% = 500,000 and that's just one year bonus. Result will be a cast system , not capitalism. Remember who get in the best schools in the country. The #1 qualification is...did your father, mother or relatives go here ! Yes we will let a few talented people just to keep things straight. This country is so corrupt it will be impossible to fix. Take a good look at these CEO...you may have seen them before as used car dealers.
have anyone ask those companies if they have give bonuses to their low key employees, i bet you they did, not millions of course, but i'll bet on a company that employe 30000 employees they give each of them at least $200 bonuse, if you multiply that the company gived their low key employees more than their ceo.(double to be exact). and i bet those employees were very happy with the bonuse and to have a job too, i am sure they are thanksfull to their company. America wants capitalism vs socialism well this is what it is, if you do not like it you should voice your opinion to your government, but from the look of it noone in this country likes socialism, looks like everyone wants money for nothing. good luck with that
CEO's do not create jobs. Good products create jobs by increasing demand to buy them. Bonuses should not be given for the number of sales. Sales could produce negative earnings. Revenue - cost of goods sold - expenses = profit . You should be paid on profits. When profits are down...no bonuses should be given. This is what happened to the stimulus package. Our tax money went to pay these CEO's bonus instead of putting money into banks for loans. Bonuses shoiuld be voted buy the stock holders who actually own part of the company by being an invester. When a CEO take a large bonus, he is taking money away from the stockholder. You can't give the stockholder a bone. Imagine where this country would be if you reduced bonuses by just 50%. I don't know why any bonuses should ever be given. You do your job...you get paid a salary...end of story.
