Marvin Windows gives employees profit-sharing bonus checks

Author:

Marvin Windows and Doors, a family-owned company based in Warroad, Minn., paid its employees their first profit-sharing checks in four years, the New York Times reports. Each of the nearly 2,600 employees received about $300 last week.

During the presidential campaign, President Obama praised Marvin on several occasions for not laying off any of their workers during the recession.

Ironically, Marvin’s president, Susan Marvin, endorsed Mitt Romney at a rally with his running mate, Paul Ryan, at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport just days before the election.
