I can't believe some some progressive blogs are getting caught up in the AIG/ Employment law question where AIG is arguing that failing to honor contracts with regards to bonuses could put them in violation of the law.
It's all such bullshit. Some executive at AIG decided he wanted his bonus but realized that in this climate with millions of Americans feeling the short end of their terrible corporate decisions and taxpayers on the hook for 150 million bucks that there would be a shitstorm if the bonuses were awarded.
So he ordered someone in legal to come up with an excuse as to why they HAD to award the bonuses because their hands were tied.
Stop over thinking this people.
