    Shouldn't the rest of the crew be entitled to some form of bonus as well. It must drive them nuts that he is bitching about money, when they are working for pennies.

    Howard is Imus -- Imus is Howard Sirius put up their own money so they took the risks and they deserve the rewards. Howard never plays with his own money. Never. And Howard is mad because he and Don thought they had pulled a fast one with their contract wording. If Howard was unhappy, he shouldn't have resigned. Howard is a sneak.

    then the others should negotiate the bonus into their contract with sirius. performance bonuses are not required for employees. salaried employees are only entitled to their salaries.

    regular workers rarely get bonuses never mind the unskilled dolts Howard hires. If they want a bonus they should peruse employment that traditionally gives bonuses.

    I have no problem with this.

    Oh I'm sure Howard just wants that money so he can give bonuses to all the crew who have worked so hard for him. Remember, he's nothing if not loyal.

    There should be no talk of bonuses for anyone related to the Howard Stern Show (including Howard) as it currently airs.

    I'm sure they have to pretend to be outraged in front of the king, while secretly the best thing to happen in their lives this year is that Stern lost the lawsuit.

    They do get bonuses. The bonuses are called "plugs".

    Poor Jackie thought he was a partner too and entitled to a piece of the profits, he didn't realize that he was working for two radio shows not just one.;)
