Default X-mas bonus season.. Are you getting one this year?

I know us guys in the construction industry had a pretty good year... In fact, alot of companies are "booming"

Are you getting one?

If you consider my dad, who sells building materials, building a pull barn and letting me store some of my shat in it a bonus, than yes!

Our yearly bonus was taken away and replaced by a 9% raise. So, after about 2 years of this, we'll be getting screwed. Cheap bastards!

I suggest everyone spend their christmas bonuses at Sears/Kmart so I can get one also. We don't find out until after the new year.
