Don’t Count on a Bonus This Holiday Season

He won't get a bonus.

Bad news, employees of small businesses. “Only 29% of small-business owners are planning to give bonuses this holiday season, according to a survey expected to be released Thursday by American Express OPEN, the company’s small-business division,” The Wall Street Journal reports. And if that’s not bad enough, only 35 percent of small-business owners are expecting to host a holiday party, the lowest amount in the ten-year history of the survey. Employees will have to embarrass themselves in front of colleagues on their own time, on their own dollar.
