Altruism in Recession

Peeped this over at the queen of gossip’s site (Dont act like you never been there too. Mr Mrs. Ms. Sir Perez…take it away:

It’s great to see that not all bankers are jackasses!

When Leonard Abess Jr. sold his majority stake in the Miami-based City National Bancshares last November, he made a cool $60 million.

But he didn’t keep it for himself!

He shared it with his tellers, bookkeepers, clerks, everyone on the payroll.

According to reports, all 399 workers on the staff received bonuses, and he even tracked down 72 former employees so they could share in the windfall.

The bonus was based on years of service and for some it amounted to tens of thousands of dollars!!

And for the lucky few, more than $100,000!!!

We need more people like Leonard Abess in the world.

WOW!! At a time when banks are being cheapskates and givng UNDESERVINGLY giving bonuses of OUR money while THEY’RE going bankrupt, there are signs of TRUE, PURE ALTRUISM. This guy exemplifies what EVERYONE OF THESE RICH ASS/LET ME STUNT IN MY SHADES THAT CAN PAY YOUR MORTGAGE rappers should be like. He got $60 mill, but he was already caking before that deal so he gave it his employees and shit money like, “yo, hold this down. It’s yours.” Like Joey said, “Yes Rae, it can be so simple.”

(DOPE)st thing of 2009 yet.
