How to Not Pay the AIG Bonuses
I think everyone needs to know exactly what these bonuses are for before we can say what is right.
Some of these bonuses are for $1,000. I don't think anyone getting a $1,000 bonus had much of a hand in the downfall of AIG. And I'm betting that it's a lot of money to the recipient, perhaps enough to make mortgage payment.
And if someone is a top producer or earner for AIG and they're entitled to a $1 million bonus, then they should get that, too. (Won't the feds be taking 40% of it back, anyway?)
What's clear here is that bonuses should not be paid for poor performance, and if "contracts" allow such payments in the absence of a positive outcome, then we have even more insight as to why AIG is in the shape it's in today, don't we?
