Taylor Swift has been busy filling in blank spaces in her crew’s paychecks.
As she wraps up her Eras Tour in the United States, the pop star handed out massive bonuses to all those who played a part in making it a success, including dancers, riggers, sound technicians, caterers and other production staff, according to multiple reports.
For truck drivers alone, Swift gave them each an extra $100,000 as an “end of the tour” bonus, per TMZ, totaling to a whopping $5 million present to the department.
“Her father was the one that actually presented the checks to our drivers,” Shomotion trucking company’s CEO Mike Scherkenbach told Today. “And he presented handwritten letters from Taylor. It’s incredible that they would take that time, and what it means to our staff to be recognized.”
But that’s only nine percent of what Swift actually spent on the overall bonuses, as People reported that she shelled out over $55 million in total to give her crew a payday bump.
