Poor little Wall Street: The New York Post is reporting that the 2012 bonus season is likely to be a lean one—at least by the Street’s standards. It seems your average Wall Streeter will be taking a 16.5% hit over last year’s bonuses, and a 50% drop since the halcyon days of 2006. What’s that translate to? An average $101,000, according to New York’s comptroller. ‘‘I don’t think this year’s bonuses are going to be very good,’’ says an analyst. ‘‘I don’t believe the typical bonuses, as we used to know them, exist anymore.’’
Come on, everyone. Let’s get together and reach into our hearts, and our wallets, and help these poor, impoverished people out. Tis the season to help those in need afterall.
