Twenty-four days of market excess: the ETUC’s bonus watch advent calendar

04 Dec 2010, by in Economics, International

As if the cuts and Christmas weren’t enough to cause problems for stressed out Europeans, the European Trade Union Confederation has launched a Bonus Watch advent calendar on its home page, with a new jaw-dropping fact every day about how we’re definitely not all in it together. Today’s grim news is that while workers at the global consumer goods company Reckitt Benckiser got a measly 2% wage increase this year, big boss Bart Becht got a £92.6 million pay packet! Visit it every day for more, if your stomach is strong enough.
