It has not been 3 years without a bonus. It has been 3 years without a raise while they continue to slash benefits. I have worked for the city over 3 years making less than 30k trying to support a wife and 2 kids. I have never once called in sick never been late and never complained about compensation. Saw this on the news and was excited I might actually get to buy my wife and kids a Christmas present this year. This one time bonus is not going to hurt anyone, still not giving us even a cost of living raise which is long over due and that is fine. I know an extra $850 in my paycheck would mean a whole lot to my family.
