A while back I worked for a national company with over 30K employees. Company decided to cut every employees salary 10%. CEO received a 20 million dollar bonus that year. Funny how that works.

This kind of shit should be outright illegal. Cut salaries or have a large layoff? Should be criminal to get a bonus, increased pay, etc. for at least a year following the event.

Costco ceo cut covid pay (admittedly was a temporary pay) and then gave himself and his cronies a big raise around the same time

They ended the COVID hazard pay ($2/hr), but increased starting pay by $1/hr and made adjustments across the board

Was that in the US? Costco Canada made covid pay permanent.

Blame the boards that give bonuses based on things like cutting costs with no restrictions on it.

I'll take "things that didn't happen for $400".

Salary cuts almost never happen like this, layoffs are preferred.
