Dh had a meeting with his boss this morning. He was presented with 2 options:
Option 1: take a 2.5% salary increase (works out about $30 extra a week)
Option 2: every 6 months receive a 5% 'bonus' on any profit made (eg if the company makes 250,000 profit, dh would receive 12,500). This is not taxed (dont know how that works- will go over the paperwork tonight).
Dh has been with this company for 3 months and they have already cleared a 250,000 profit since he started, and they have even more work coming in daily.
He is leaning towards option 2. I see pros and cons for each, but am also leaning to Option 2. He feels it would act as extra incentive for him to continue bringing in work and help him stay motivated- the more work he brings in = more money in his pocket every 6 months.
If you were faced with this choice, what would you choose. And why?
