🀬 PG&E & bonuses

“PG&E said bonuses have historically constituted 6 to 20 percent of employees’ pay and brought their total compensation “in line with the market and their peers in the utility space.””

Why doesn’t PG&E pay its workers a market wage to begin with??? Why do PG&E’s workers need to rely on unreliable EOY bonuses in order to round out their yearly pay?

This makes no sense to me. Pay your workers a full wage to do their job. If they don’t do their job well, terminate their employment. Why in the world would you pay someone a less than fair wage and then keep them employed at the company if they fail to accomplish the requirements of their job???
