Argument: AIG employees turned down jobs on basis of bonus contracts
Jake DeSantis, an executive VP in AIG's financial products unit. "Dear A.I.G., I Quit!". New York Times (Op-ed). March 24, 2009 - "Many of the employees have, in the past six months, turned down job offers from more stable employers, based on A.I.G.’s assurances that the contracts would be honored. They are now angry about having been misled by A.I.G.’s promises and are not inclined to return the money as a favor to you."
