What Are Fringe Benefits?
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Bill and Sue were talking about their new jobs. They had been hired by the same company. Sue had been reading their company handbook. She was telling Bill about what she had read.
 
2     "We have some awesome fringe benefits at this new job," Sue said excitedly.
 
3     "What are fringe benefits?" Bill asked.
 
4     "They are things besides your pay that the company gives you," Sue explained.
 
5     "Wow, I'm just happy that I'll be getting a paycheck!" Bill exclaimed.
 
6     "Wait ‘til you hear about this other stuff," Sue said.
 
7     Sue went on to explain all the fringe benefits of their new job. She started with sick days. Sue told Bill that the company gives them five sick days a year. If they are sick, they can stay home and still get paid. If they don't use all their sick days, they can save them for the next year.
 
8     "That's great," said Bill.
