What Happens When CEOs Get Huge Bonuses At Companies Like Walmart? Umm … Not What You’d Expect.
So when you and I get bonuses at work, guess what? We pay taxes on that money. Usually 35% or more. When CEOs at places like Walmart get bonuses? We also pay taxes on that, in the form of tax deductions for those companies, which means less tax money going to roads and bridges and fire departments and lots of other things that taxes pay for. So yeah, when they don't pay, ultimately, we do. Now excuse me while I take some ibuprofen and go scream a little bit in the woods.
