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.
