ثقافة المكافآت عند المصرفيين البريطانيين

bankers

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today John and Rasha talk about banker's bonuses.

People who work in the banking industry are known to receive very high salaries and large bonuses.

This is sometimes called a "bonus culture".

Some of them receive millions every year depending on their job title and the type of risks they take.

Because of the serious problems that happened to international banks and the negative effects they had on the global economy, a number of banks were saved from total collapse by governments who used money from tax payers to help the banks.

In the UK, a lot of people are now upset that even though their government used public money to save the banks from problems the banks caused, bankers are still receiving large salaries and bonuses.

They would like to see a cap on the wages and bonuses that these bankers receive, maybe even a maximum wage.

They don't want bankers to be paid so much money as they feel that it was the bankers who caused this economic recession.

But Professor Scott Schaefer from the University of Utah in the USA told the BBC that sometimes companies are forced to pay their senior staff large bonuses and salaries, even if they might not want to pay them so much.

This is because investors may think that a company that does not pay its directors a lot of money does not have confidence in them and therefore it will not be very successful.

However if the company pays its directors very well, then investors will think that the company is rewarding its directors because they are very capable and deserve the money they are receiving.

Another idea some people have suggested is for bankers to receive salaries that increase when the bank makes money and decrease when the banks lose money.

These people argue that this is a fairer way of dealing with bankers.
