10,000 workers get generous bonus from Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing

It will come as no surprise to anyone who follows the technology world that CEOs at major corporations make a ton of money. Often their bonuses are even more than their yearly income. The CEO of Lenovo, Yang Yuanqing, recently received a fat bonus of $3 million. Rather than stuffing that big bonus away in his own bank account, Yang Yuanqing gave it away.
 
The CEO took the $3 million bonus and distributed it among 10,000 junior level employees. Among the employees to receive a piece of the pie were receptionists, production line workers, and assistants. Each of those 10,000 employees received a bonus of 2000 yuan, which works out to about $314 USD.
 
Lenovo had its best fiscal year ever, which ended in March. Lenovo saw a 73% increase in net profit compared to the previous year and Yang had previously said that it was a "record-setting year for Lenovo."
 
It's nice to see an executive giving away a huge chunk of money to the employees that had as much to do with Lenovo's successful year as any executive within the company.

Lenovo has recently launched several new products and services, including new no-contract broadband plans for its mobile computers.

How sad that you were actually voted down. The WWII generation, often considered the "greatest generation" for what was accomplished in WW2 would have soundly agreed with you. They knew about working together and understood that sacrifice was needed to win against the threat of Fascism.

Of course now the current thinking in the USA is-- such thinking is leftist and ideologically perverse and against our "Founding Fathers".

Yes, welcome to the shit generation that is turning this country into shit. Me first and foremost and if you don't agree I'm going to get my minuteman musket and shoot you in your leftist left eye so you can see things my way!

Wish you can vote after posting...

Yep... quite sad. They don't seem to understand what words mean. The USA became great by being a progressive country, to invent technology and industries. The freedom of expression, etc... things, they are dead set against and want to go back to the OLD days of cowboys and Indians, but without the Indians.
