AIG: The bonus or your job, not both

Leave a comment

There's not much point in rehashing the vileness and baseness of the scumbags at AIG.  Maybe it's the case, as some assert, that AIG had to dole out millions of taxpayer dollars to its corrupt and incompetent executives because of "contractual obligations."  But I like the suggestion of a consultant, noted in this morning's Wall Street Journal, that if AIG wanted to try to avoid making the payments, it "could tell employees that if they chose not to take the bonus, they could keep their jobs."  After all, he said, "There's a lot of people looking for work on Wall Street."   [Barney agrees.]
