Workers Get $6.6 Million Year End Bonus

November 30, 2008 By · No Comments

Wow, this is one company that knows how to treat their employees. An Illinois company that was recently acquired by a Sweden group decided to (the old employer) treat the staff with a nice Thanksgiving gift. Each member was given their own turkey for Thanksgiving, which is a great gesture, but they weren’t expecting the following:

They gave away $6.6 million in year-end bonuses to Peer’s 230 employees, decided by a formula based on each worker’s years of service.

“My grandfather was always charitable,” said Danny Spungen, grandson of Peer founder Nathan Spungen. He said Laurence and Florence Spungen and their four children decided on a bonus formula a year before the acquisition closed.

Wow right? What a great family this was.

What I Wish: A Christmas Tree

November 22, 2008 By · No Comments

This past month has been one thing after another, but I realized when things start going right again what I want to do. See, I was inside Walmart this past month and being the holiday season they have everything decorated. The thing that caught my eye though was the Christmas tree with all those wishes on it. This doesn’t normally get to me, most of the time I don’t stop to read them as I have four kids and want to get in and out. No time to stop, but this time I did and some of me wishes I didn’t.

Don’t go thinking I’m mean and heartless, instead it is the opposite reaction. As I stood in front of this tree it brought back memories of the past. I remember one year looking out my mother’s trailer window as a red corvette pulled up beside it. An elf appeared out the driver’s side door and he had a giant red bag in the backseat, quickly he came in and I dashed to my room and hid under the covers. A few minutes later I heard it drive off, I snuck out to the living room to discover he’d left a ton of presents. I’ll never forget the toys under the tree that year, Rainbow Brite and her Sprites, Gummy Bear Pals, Poppable and a Miss Piggy ceramic statue. There were others but those were what I remembered. Thinking back it brought a smile on my face, but a frown soon showed as I looked at the tree I read what the wishes were and it wasn’t for toys but clothes.

Instead of reading: Hannah Montana, Jonas Brothers or some other popular item, these wishes were for “socks so I don’t have to wear my brothers, a sweater, pack of socks, underwear, etc” these were true needed items. I really want to just grab that tree and get everything on the list and toys for each child. Toys, which none of them asked for and a book for each. I’m a sentimental person yes but this is just something that really got to me. I will one day do just that, grab the tree and buy everything. Why? Because I will be out of debt and able to afford to do it. I know what I want now and I’m determined to help. This year we did toss in a pack of socks for one child but I want more for them.
