Nobody has a comment on the absence of "bonuses" this year?

Nobody has a comment on the absence of "bonuses" this year?

In most of the years since LLNS took over, all employees received a "non-base building" bonus. I think it was usually 1 to 1.5%.

This year, there was a single terse announcement that the Director decided that the "Variable Compensation Plan" was not being implemented this year. The announcement did not contain the word "bonus", so I wonder if people missed the implication.

Yes, I'm being greedy, since we DID get raises. But the employee bonuses were supposed to come out of the LLNS fee. The idea was that we deserved the bonus because we all helped earn the award fee.

I wonder where the fee money went.....

LANS has never done this.

Pretty sure there were only a couple years of bonuses, starting with the pay freeze. It seemed like a way to give the employees something.

Washington believes the NNSA labs are spoiled brats with way oversized salaries.

I didn't know that "Washington" believed in anything. Imagine that - a sentient city!

Sorry, if you want me to believe there's a sentient city, you'll have to pick a more credible choice than Washington.
