No raise? Not to worry! The boss bought us this 'hangover couch'!!

One-Time Bonuses and Perks Muscle Out Pay Raises for Workers.  (The New York Times, 5/25/2015)
At Squaremouth, a software company in St. Petersburg, Fla., most employees received an annual raise of 0.8 percent for 2015, just enough to match last year’s rise in consumer prices. But staff members have been treated to other sweeteners like new Apple Watches — preordered with choice of size and color — a $200 “beer” bonus, birthdays off and the installation of a “hangover couch” for midday snoozes.
