“The prospect of smaller profits combined with public ire over banker pay – including that from the Occupy Wall Street movement – means that many in the finance industry are saying they believe that the culture of huge bonuses and paychecks may be over forever, at least according to one ex-Lehman banker.
‘The feeling is compensation is never really going to come back, which is something entirely new,’ the anonymous ex-Wall Street worker told New York Magazine as part of their Workplace Confidential series. 'After the tech bubble, no one questioned it wouldn’t come back. We all knew it would. Now it’s different. It’s just no fun.’”
Wait, how is this not an article from The Onion? WAH WAH, WALL STREET BANKERS, LIFE IS SO HARD.
