According to a recent article in the SF Gate, HP employees are hoping new CEO Leo Apotheker will be able to restore the 5 percent hit their salaries took in February 2009 when the economy took a turn for the worse. Since that time, HP has bounced back and they even gave employees a one-time cash bonus at the end of 2009 to compensate for the money that was lost. But employees feel that if the company was able to pay the bonus they should be able to restore the salaries.
