Today, after months of busting our asses and working round the clock on our latest project, I and the whole office just got bad news: when our boss promised extremely generous bonuses for doing all this, he was point-blank lying, and intended to take credit for our work all along. FML

This is not an uncommon practice among corporate elites without a collar and leash. Governments have to get their act together and become responsible regulators.

People like this need to be muzzled and given a tight tether.

That sucks for OP and their co-workers, but what on earth would the government regulate here? Should they get involved in every situation where someone takes credit for other peoples work? They would be spending all time and resources on monitoring the day to day operations of every company. Like they're not already too involved in what people can do and say. Take this as a lesson learned. Get things in writing, like the promise of a bonus, keep track of hours spent and what tasks were completed throughout your project.

tl;dr: no government; deal with it

Two things.
one: op should quit. i would. that's always an option and at times makes a statement.
two: government has nothinf to do with this and i love the downvotes going on here.
op could attempt to sue or go to hr. government cant really regulate business management outside of how they already are without having a fascist or communistic country.

I don't think anyone will care. The project was done. That's what counts. But the thing about getting a big project done is, you've got to keep doing it. Just how motivated will the workers be when he comes in with the next one. "I'll give a big bonus" says he. "Ha" says everyone else.

Not to point out the obvious but I'm sure that offering an incentive such as a bonus often fills those it's offered to with a sense of want and excitement. Besides, who wouldn't want a bonus as a reward for their hard work.
