Delta Air Lines is giving its workers two months extra pay as a bonus for the company’s strong performance for 2019.
It’s part of the company’s profit-sharing program. Delta announced it’s giving workers $1.6 billion in bonuses. That means every eligible employee will get a check next month for nearly 17% of their annual salary, which works out to two months pay.
Delta’s CEO said, “Delta would be nothing without our 90,000 people. They deserve all the credit.”
Delta says the payout is a record amount for Delta and the sixth straight year it has paid out more than a billion to workers.
The profit-sharing does not include the airline’s officers, directors, and general managers.
