Things are so bad at ailing (dying?) Nortel that moral for the (entire?) company would improve if their eight highest-paid executives be allowed to get bonuses. Wow, how bad must it be that I’d be more happy to get to work and work hard knowing that my fat-ass manager was making more than your fat-ass manager?
You gotta respect the nerve of these people – asking for bonuses because the management is sad three or four months after laying off 1300 employees. Them’s be Colbert-quality cajones.
