Hornady Manufacturing has issued employee cash bonuses in the form of $2 bills this year, with a request from management to spend the money in town. It's a move intended to boost spending in the central Nebraska city of Grand Island. Vice President Jason Hornady says the company recently handed out $61,000 worth of $2 bills to its employees as part of the company's annual bonus pay. Hornady says getting 30,500 $2 bills to give to employees takes some doing. He orders the bills from a bank about a month in advance. Hornady Manufacturing is one of Grand Island's leading employers with more than 300 people on its payroll.
