Normally, these annual stories about profit sharing checks from various local companies (Anderson Windows, etc.) include the amount of money each employee received. Of course, that was back in the day when the newspaper had actual reporters.

They should invest some of that money into removing the stench from the town. Everyone in Austin stinks.

I don't need to know who got what...but just an average amount, the lowest, and the highest bonus would suffice for me.

Why bother reporting the story at all?

I can see Hormel doing well as people are buying a lot of cheap products like Spam to save money. At least one company is doing well in these hard times.

This from a guy who likes to hang around the men's room just to smell everyone's dookie.

$15.89 bonus to upper management and a couple bucks each the non-union grunts.

After using undocumented labor to break the unions they then turned on them, they all got deported and the management got no fines.
