Roger Brouwer: PG&E being a little too generous to employees

Regarding Wednesday’s article in The Union about PG&E’s plan for $235 million in bonuses, the article indicated that “payments will not go to senior management but be given to about 10,000 rank-and-file employees.”

I don’t know how Common Core does its math, but my calculator says that comes to approximately $23,500 per employee. Most companies only pay out bonuses when times are profitable.

That seems to me to be extremely generous for a bankrupt company seeking to raise our electric rates (which, by the way, are already much higher than the rest of the country) to be handing out to “rank-and-file” employees!
