Pay attention employers: here's a lesson in treating your workers right.

Griffin Communications, the owner of CBS stations KWTV and KQCW in Oklahoma, decided to give $500 to every employee at the company for no other reason than, "why not?"

It must be a good day to be Mr. Trauschke. But it makes sense: Business is good, people are happy-- so why not share the wealth?

PS: Dear HuffPost bosses: ahem.
