Despite a decline in industry profits last year, Wall Street employees received $28.5 billion in bonuses.That’s double the annual pay for all 1,007,000 Americans working full-time at the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
So they're allowed to give out bonuses when they got bailed out?
I think that their bonuses should immediately be paid back to the United States government for the bailout. These Wall Street financiers caused so many people in this country to lose their retirements and investments.
How about paying them back instead of padding your own pockets Wall Street?
