Some say there’s a witchhunt:
Last year, I made 115k salary plus a 135k bonus (250k total, which does not go as far as you think in Manhattan). After taxes, the bonus was 75k cash.
You really don’t get it, do you?
You’re getting hysterical over a six-figure income in a country with one of the worst infant and maternal mortality rates in the developed world.
I don’t usually get this harsh, but I don’t know what else to say?
There are people here who choose between medication and food, who go without necessary medical care, who have not purchased brand-new clothing in decades, who are losing their homes (renters, too, as this affects landlords), who are losing their jobs, whose children go to sucky schools, whose only “spa treatment” is their morning shower.
And you think we should care that you’re going to be in a spot of trouble over a bonus…?
