Wall Street Bonuses Double the Minimum

Mar 30, 2015

About 168,000 high-paid Wall Streeters got 28.5 billion dollars in bonuses last year. Bonuses, that is, equal to twice as much as one million people made all year long, working 40 hours a week for the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. Just think: those bonuses would be enough to triple the minimum wage of a million people.

That would be a much better use of the money!
