While employees report not receiving severance payments, executives of Sears have been given the green light for millions in bonuses.

CBS Chicago reports:

“So far this year, Sears has filed for bankruptcy protection, reported $2 billion dollars in losses, and is closing more than 180 stores, in addition to laying off hundreds of workers.

But . . . a bankruptcy judge approved Sears’ plan to give millions in bonuses to the company’s top-ranking employees.

The Chicago Tribune reports that a U.S. bankruptcy judge approved Sears’ $25.3 million dollar bonus request.

$8 million would be split among 18 key executives, and another $16 million would be split among 322 other high-ranking employees to stay put while Sears restructures and tries to stay afloat.”
