Think Your Boss Would Do This For You?

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," the big guys are helping out the little guys. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Executives at Parkland Hospital in Dallas aren't waiting for the federal minimum wage to go up.

They are voluntarily giving up their bonuses to give raises to all of their minimum wage employees.

The move to raise the base salary to $10.25 an hour will cost approximately $350,000 per year, and the money is coming entirely from hospital executives' pockets.

But there must be a catch - deferred compensation? Restrictions? Nope, not the case.

"I thought it was a joke, I'm not going to lie," hospital employee Louise Sedberry said. "Because I have three kids so I won't have to work so much overtime for one, I can spend more time with them."

In the case of Parkland Hospital, it's one of those times where it's apparently not too good to be true.
