Bonus recipients far less charitable

People who receive higher bonuses are less likely to give to charity than those on lower earnings, according to new research.

The study by researchers at the University of Southampton shows higher earners are less inclined to give, and donate a similar share of their money compared to those on lower incomes.

Dr Mirco Tonin and Dr Michael Vlassopoulos found that people getting high bonuses tend to attribute their windfall to their own hard work.
