Just what would they be paying them bonuses for? Getting them to bankruptcy? Oh for crying out loud, these companies have obligations to their suppliers and lenders. They had an obligation to their shareholders to stay the heck out of bankruptcy. No this isn’t the time to hand out bonuses and run up credit cards. It’s the time to be fiscally responsible for a change and be accountable for past mistakes. Draw up a recovery plan. Nows the time to give back your bonuses and stock options, not get more.
