Michigan Company Announces $4-Million In Christmas Bonuses

I often joke on the show about getting a Christmas bonus of a membership in the "jelly-of-the-month" club without referencing to what movie I am referring.  Many listeners will know that Clark Griswold gets that membership instead of the expected cash in "Christmas vacation."

No such problem at one company in Detroit.

FloraCraft, which makes foam products for the craft and floral industries, has 200 employees and company owner Lee Schoenherr recently gave them the good news that he’s sharing close to $4-million with them.

The amount each employee will receive will vary based on how long they’ve been working there, but the average bonus will be about $20,000. The gift will come in the form of a cash bonus and a special contribution to the employee’s 401(k) retirement account.

If you’re thinking you’d like to apply for a job here, get this. Big bonuses aren’t the only good thing about working here. Since the company started back in 1946, they’ve never had a layoff! And while the average employee will receive 20-grand, those with more than 40 years of service will get a gift of over $60,000 altogether.
