Solyndra reportedly seeking to award bonuses to remaining employees
After blowing through millions of dollars in taxpayer money, solar-panel firm Solyndra is looking to hand out bonuses.
According to a report in The Washington Times, company attorneys have filed a proposal in federal bankruptcy court to hand out bonuses worth between $10,000 and $50,000 to about two dozen Solyndra workers.
The attorneys reportedly argue that the money will help motivate the few remaining employees in trying times, as the company goes through bankruptcy proceedings. The total value of the proposed bonuses is estimated at $500,000.
