Some stories just restore your faith in humanity. In this one, Yang Yuanqing, who is the CEO of Lenovo, shared his $3 billion bonus with the junior-level employees of Lenovo instead of taking it for himself. With 10,000 such employees at Lenovo, each one only receives about $314 dollars (according to CNN). But, Lenovo is a Chinese company. $314 USD is actually quite a lot of Chinese workers. Urban per capita income stood just under 24000 yuan in 2011, which is just under $4000 USD. With this in mind, $314 is not a bad gift by any means. Yuanqing made $14 million last year, according to Lenovo's annual report.
