Interesting point of view...& a fact for arguments
Why there is a 13 month bonus when it's really isn't a bonus?
The mystery is finally revealed!
When the British were in Malaya, they were being paid weekly and they argued that locals were actually being cheated into believing that the13th month pay is a bonus.
Locals were being paid monthly which is equivalent to 4 weeks pay because there are 4 weeks in a month. As the British were paid weekly, it worked out to the same.
You see, there are 7 days in a week. 4 weeks in a month. 12 months in a year.
Then 12 months should work out to 48 weeks only.
But 1 year worked out to 52 weeks!!!
Hence the 13th month is your own pay (not bonus??!!).
So, the British argued that there is in fact no bonus at all???
It is a very simple calculation that stunned many!!!!
BONUS ??? What bonus??? It's actually your pay...!!!
