It’s a good time to be working for Southwest Airlines. The company had a profitable 2019 and they’re sharing that with their employees. They just announced plans to give 60,000 employees a $667-million profit-sharing bonus.
That means some eligible workers will soon get a check for 12.2% of their annual salary, which comes out to about six weeks of extra pay. Other employees will get the bonus added to their retirement accounts.
“Our employees delivered outstanding results despite a challenging year,” explains Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly, “and it's a pleasure to reward our people for all they contribute to our continued success.”
