The figure of $370,000 which, according to Doocy is "what the remaining bosses... are getting", was scaled down. "They originally wanted to give themselves half a million dollar bonuses".
It's worth noting that, according to the Washington Times, the total amount comes from bonuses being dished out to nearly two-dozen employees, with the individual amounts ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. The employees receiving bonuses include equipment engineers, technology workers and general business and finance employees.
According to Solyndra's lawyers, the bonuses are an attempt to retain key employees and offer greater job security. More claims in the case are pending, for other employees seeking higher compensation.
