Yeah! Goldman Sachs had a very profitable first-half of the year. So you know what that means! Bonus! Lotsa lotsa bonuses. The executives would probably patting themselves on the back if they weren’t too busy flippin’ everyone off.
From the Guardian: “Goldman Sachs staff can look forward to the biggest bonus payouts in the firm’s 140-year history after a spectacular first half of the year.”
In their defense, however, they did set aside nearly $1.2billion in profits to pay for these bonuses. It’s just that, well, um, you know, there’s that whole $10 billion they borrowed from tax payers that should be paid back first.
