Bonus money is very different the taking money from an hourly wage.
To the OP I would consider doing the bonus qtrly or mid season. Why? Things will average out more. If a guy is on time everyother week does he deserve a bonus? If a guy puts gas in a 2 stroke and causes $500 blower loss earn a bonus the next month? Turnover is a problem in the industry, do you want to pay a bonus to a guy for 2 weeks then he never show up again?
Doing it qtrly or mid season rewards consistant and loyal employees.
