Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Johnson & Johnson plans to cut the yearly performance-bonus maximums for 38% of its employees and freeze salaries for certain workers, according to an internal announcement and other company documents. J&J reported a 19% drop in fourth-quarter earnings, largely because of charges related to cost restructuring. The company had announced in November that it was eliminating 8,200 jobs, mostly overseas.
"The cost savings from this program are minimal. It is not why we implemented the program. This program is about creating a global compensation program that is consistent and equitable for our employees across the company," a J&J spokeswoman said.
