Too little too late? or just what is needed to get on the right track?
So, they received the money that was contractually obligated to them, then are threatened with recourse if they don't return it and are told that if they don't return it on their own, the government will take it from them. Wow, I am so surprised that they are returning the money. I think it was stupid of AIG and the government to not have put conditions on the bailout money, but those employees have contracts. It's wrong to take that away from them and I am sure there will be lawsuits over getting that money back on behalf of those under contract.

Just curious, if you have a contract on your house and the feds don't feel that you are paying enough, should they have the ability to change your contract after the fact?
That is exactly what they are doing with this. It's a violation of law that they are threatening. Those employees had contracts. Whether they earned the money or not, their contracts are legally binding. If you give the govt. enough control to change it now (after the fact), then cover your arse, because you could be next. Again, we are failing to see the big picture.

heatherama, I think it's interesting that some are returning the money, but I have to wonder why. Are they being threatened by other citizens (we all know how nice everyone has been with Octomom, it's not a stretch to think that these employees have incurred death threats as well). If so, I think I would file this one under 'class envy', as those that feel entitled are putting pressure on those that they think don't work hard enough to earn that money.
