Christmas

Okay so in the past few years at work we were able to give out bonuses. 5 years to be exact. The first of those 5 my mom and dad took a loan out against their house to cover it. Last year me, and dad forfeited our bonuses so the guys could have them. Last year they ranged anywhere from $2000-$150. This year ... we can't do them. We have had to borrow money from the bank on 2 occasions to cover payroll. If you are asking why we can't cover it - we have 3 jobs that had/have extras. In construction extras don't always go as planned ... one extra cost us over $320,000 - we have filed a lien on that job and have also called in a arbitrator. So we are doing all we can to recover that money plus the $141,000 in retainage that they owe us. With just that job alone we could cover all our past due bills, and get caught up on payroll. Anyway I am rambling ... we aren't able to do bonuses this year ... all our guys are complaining about it. I blew up and yelled at all of them that they were lucky to even have a J-O-B ... they all looked at me like I was nutz. ASS HATS!
Okay thanks for letting me vent.
PS Joann if you are reading ... I tried to find your e-mail and couldn't - couldn't find your blog either ... the babies are 14 months apart - One in June 07 and the other in August 08. I don't know if twins wouldn't have been easier! hahaha

I agree with Robin, love the phrase ass hats.

I know you probably feel really bad about it and the long time employees are used to it but it's something that a lot of employers have had to do this season. Maybe once you get everything caught up from the delinquent account you can offer them a Spring time employee appreciation bonus.

Times are tough for everyone. You would think that people remember that before they open their mouths!

i would think they would understand...seeing how they work there and see it everyday.

times are tough...people should just be happy they have jobs....i know plenty who don't.

I am in the same boat as you. No Christmas bonus this year for the employees as well. I feel bad. I just wish everybody would understand the word bonus! It doesn't mean "guaranteed". I think you are right about the whole having a job thing. I guess nobody understands what it is just to have a surviving business right now.

Wow...what do they expect you to do? My gosh...to take out a lein on your own home in the past for them and they have the nerve to complain this year? People are so self centered...

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
