AIG VP resigns, donates bonus to charity

Jake DeSantis, an executive vice president of A.I.G., has been working for a $1 a year salary, and is not in the group that's responsible for the company's disastrous current situation. He and other coworkers feel hung out to dry by their CEO, who's not defending them from the unfair ranting in the media and in political circles.

You’ve now asked the current employees of A.I.G.-F.P. to repay these earnings. As you can imagine, there has been a tremendous amount of serious thought and heated discussion about how we should respond to this breach of trust.

As most of us have done nothing wrong, guilt is not a motivation to surrender our earnings. We have worked 12 long months under these contracts and now deserve to be paid as promised. None of us should be cheated of our payments any more than a plumber should be cheated after he has fixed the pipes but a careless electrician causes a fire that burns down the house.
