An employee takes his turn during the new "Lunchtime Fund Raiser"
Other employees are trying to deal with the "cutbacks" imposed upon them by the gutting of their livelihood. AVP Fred Hernandez, noted that while their trappings aren't what they once were, they take solace in the fact that they are still gainfully employed. Alfonse LeRon Jefferson, the first African-American CFO at the company, showed us the new and improved breakroom now equipped with "sleeping quarters" so weary traders can rest after a stress flled afternoon on the floor. "We're down but not out!" exclaimed Jefferson. "People slap my cup away and tell me to get off drugs or whatever. I just laugh and think about the two houses I used to have and snorting coke out of the cleavage of a Brazilian escort and I know I'll be doing that again because of the country I live in. Opportunities, man. Nothing but opportunities."
