Bail-out bankers will get their bonuses after all

It's absolutely disgusting that these people should get bonuses when there is an economic crisis of this magnitude, especially when those bonuses are being funded by the taxpayer.

Bonuses for failure?

My employer sets me unreasonable bonus targets that cannot possibly be met and even when they are met we get a measly "staff night out". Why should these people get anything at all when our economy is all but in ruins?

It's the rich looking after the rich.

This is not about America. And even if it was, I fail to see the point in what you said.

Edit: spelling.

Thank you for agreeing with me, by the way. I am aware that this is happening all over the world. I think it is atrocious no matter where it is happening.
