What Was Your Bonus At Work In 2017?

March 28, 2018

Wall Street bonuses are the highest they’ve been since before the Great Recession.

The average bonus in 2017 was $184,220 according to estimates from New York’s state comptroller. If that bonus is more than double your annual salary, take comfort that you aren’t alone. The median household income in the U.S. in 2016 was $59,039.

I have no problem with people getting bonuses for the jobs they do.  I understand players in the market make money themselves as evidence they are making it for others.  Fine with me.  What I have an issue with is that in the most important professions in our land–such as teachers or law enforcement–pay and bonuses are not provided in the manner they should.
