um... I think they should have gotten these bonuses(after reading the letter published by the NYTimes). "Dear AIG, I QUIT!"
Like you, I was asked to work for an annual salary of $1, and I agreed out of a sense of duty to the company and to the public officials who have come to its aid. Having now been let down by both, I can no longer justify spending 10, 12, 14 hours a day away from my family for the benefit of those who have let me down.
Seems to me that if I worked all year for a whole dollar, but was to get a bonus at the end of the year, I think I would like that bonus, please.
