News.au – ONE boss surprised his employees by handing out bonuses based on who could best drink him under the table. An employee surnamed Zhang from Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, China, said that his boss placed a pile of money on the table saying that people would get their bonuses based on how much they drink. “Men were given 500 yuan ($92) for a shot of liquor, 200 yuan for a glass of red wine and 100 yuan for a beer. Women were given twice as much money for consuming the same amounts,” Zhang told the Global Times. “We worked hard all year only to learn our bonuses would be decided by our alcohol tolerance. It was absolutely unfair to people who can’t drink much.” The boss said that the company’s business success was rooted in employees being able to hold their liquor with clients. Many employees became drunk. Mr Zhang said those with high alcohol tolerance could pocket over 10,000 yuan, while others had to settle for 1000 yuan. “I couldn’t get a bonus if I didn’t drink, but it is bad for one’s health to drink too much. Everyone ended up drinking and some people vomited,” said Mr Zhang, who described the unusual bonus system as “unreasonable and inhumane.” Legal experts said there are no laws related to the distribution of year-end bonuses, which is determined at the discretion of employers.
Now here’s a bonus structure I can get behind. None of this “merit” shit. Performance based, reformance shmaced. Nobody is trying to do incentive based targets and all that shit. Just make your employees gets dangerously shitfaced if they want that check come Christmas time. You better believe I would drink myself into a fucking coma if I was getting paid per shot. Just put me on my side so I dont choke on my own vomit and leave my bonus check in my front pocket.
Pretty genius idea to do at a Asian company. This dude probably gave out like 300 bucks in total bonuses this year. Asians can’t drink for shit. Truth be told I probably can’t anymore either. If I’m being honest if Pres implemented this policy now I’d probably get like a $500 bonus. I’d have like 3 shots, 2 glasses of cab and a beer and I’d probably tie a bow on it. Go take a nap or some shit. Don’t wanna be too hungover for my morning commute to the couch, Pres! But thanks for the bonus!
