Today's appalling statistic:
The Wall Street bonus pool for last year is roughly double the total earnings of all Americans who work full time at the federal minimum wage.
In case you wondered, there are 1.03 million Americans who worked full time (at least 35 hours) for the minimum wage last year, earning $14-15 billion; the bonuses paid out by Wall Street firms totaled $27.8 billion.
