back to article Fujitsu Services hacks bonuses to pay for minimum wage hike

Folk at Fujitsu Services Engineering Services Ltd (FSESL) have claimed that changes to their bonuses made to accommodate a rise in the minimum wage will actually leave some of them worse off.

    Of course...

    now there's no loyalty bonus, there's nothing from stopping people from leaving (and letting HR know that's the reason for leaving during the exit interview)

    What do people expect?

    The MBA types to use profits to raise folks minimum wage? Their own bonuses would go down. Can't have that!

    Never again. The pay schemes are so complex its impossible to work out if your getting paid right, and i had suspicions i wasnt. Even worse where the managers who either didn't care or didn't understand, so going to them over pay was pointless.
