United was going to replace bonuses with lottery

United Planned to replace employee bonuses with a lottery where 1 lucky employee (The bosses nephew won again? wow what luck!) would get $100,000. Our local lottery sell scratchers with a $100,000 top prize for $5. So in essence they would have replaced a $1500 bonus with a $5 scratch off lottery ticket


"Our intention was to introduce a better, more exciting program, but we misjudged how these changes would be received by many of you," said Scott Kirby, president of United Continental, the holding company for the airline, in an email to employees. "We are pressing the pause button," he wrote.

Experts on compensation and workplace culture said they had never heard of a company of United's size and stature trying this kind of lottery program.

"I really thought it was a joke when I first heard of it," said Tom Gimbel, founder and CEO of LaSalle Network, a national staffing and recruiting firm. "It's very amateurish."

Just more reasons to oust the highest levels of administration. Scumbags get bailouts and refuse to pay employees while instituting ways to make people quit.
