just another sign of their greed.....wonder how soon they will be back for another hand-out when the same people they are trying to retain and who were responsible for the first go-around mess get them back into another mess????? Why does ANY banker need to make more that $100k per year??? Why does ANY management person think they are worth salaries of $1Mil or more???? What have they really done to earn that money??? Whose pocket(s) is that pay coming out of??? The investors (who are dumb enough to invest their money with the bank) or the customers who are paying outrageous fees for the bank's services, or is it just paper value???? It is time that regulators put VERY tight controls on ALL aspects of the financial services market....commercial banks, investment banks (whatever that term means), insurance companies, financial planners, savings and loans (oops, do they even exist any more), credit unions, stock brokers and their companies, credit card companies, and any one else I may have missed. I for one will ONLY deal with LOCAL community banks from now on. I'm going to pay off my credit cards as soon as possible and only use my bank debit card. If I don't have the money in the account to buy something, then I don't really need it, do I?????
