Yahoo! News - Mich. Factory Taxes $15 Holiday Bonus

This Yahoo news story reminds of a company I worked for many years ago. One Christmas, after years of never receiveing any kind of holiday cheer, my colleagues and I were surprised to find a $30 bonus in our pay envelopes. Not a lot, but it was a step in the right direction, and we were grateful. But the next week there was a note in our pay envelopes. It turns out that the bonus was only supposed to be $15, so the company deducted the $15 balance from our checks.

Sometimes all you can do is laugh.
