Do you get a bonus from the finance company you worked at if you got hired through a temp agency?

If you got your finance job by going through a temp agency. Will the finance company who pays the temp agency who pays you give you a separate personal bonus just as if you were hired directly from the company?

ABC finance company pays temp agency - $36/hour
Temp agency pays you, the worker - $18/ hour

Will ABC finance company give you a bonus because they know that you are being paid very poorly through the temp agency?

Totally depends on the employer and the terms of the contract they have with the temp agency. Hard to imagine a scenario where they pay directly and the temp agency doesn't get its cut.

Speculation: I'd be pretty shocked at a holiday bonus for a temp greater than $500. A $50 visa gift card sounds par for the course.
