    I give all my employees a Christmas bonus every year, even though my business is only open during the spring and summer. It's not a $33,000 check, but they seem happy with what they get.

    eddo I don't like you.

    My branch usually gives out $25-$50 grocery cards for the holidays.

    Then I can go buy a turkey...

    I lied a little...

    One place gave us a Turkey for Thanksgiving and a Honeybaked Ham for Christmas. He also threw us one hell of a party; we got to get out of our grungies and had an open bar.

    Another place gave out gift books... and a Honeybaked Ham.

    And once I got $100 cash.

    In the coming years, I hope to be able to provide my employees with bonuses. We're in the early stages of growth and money is a little tight. We're just lucky to have jobs, because so many are going under around us.

    We had a company Thanksgiving at my house Wednesday evening. I deep fryed a turkey and the guys brought over whatever they wished to contribute.

    These bonuses, however, will come at sporadic and/or particularly bountiful times. If bonus time come in the late Fall or early Winter, then the timing was just right.

    Fukk this giving automatically because it's "that time of the year". If anyone was any good at all, they'd give when they could and what they could afford year around.

    Ohh... and they will be based on merit. I'm not running a pre-K program down here.

    Good for you.

    And I don't give equal bonuses across the board either because you know what...some of them work a hell of a lot more hours and damn harder while they're there. They are the ones who find a hunskie in their Christmas envelope.
