    I was probably over-generalizing, based on the horror stories I've heard.  (see Ariana Huffington's book "Pigs at the Trough")

    As a person who's in finance... I wonder, how you feel about the huge bonuses just paid to wall-street and bank company execs in the last few weeks (after taking huge amounts of tax payer funds)?

      As a person in finance. I think it's crap, but I'm in the minority. I'm also a bottom feeder so while all the headlines read that wall st execs are getting huge bonuses, while true for those at the top, it does not apply to the rest of us working stiffs. Many of us work on little base salaries throughout the year and we have to rely on our "generous" superiors to give us any significant bonus at all that will actually add up to a fair salary for the year overall. And our work weeks are certainly not limited to 40 hours.
