"When banks have a revenue problem, they're left with one way to respond," said one Wall Street recruiter. "That's by ripping out costs."

Wow!  What an insight.

This is a sad day for America, because whenever we ask "What does America need more of to make it better?" I think we all agree that the first job that pops into our heads is "Wall Street investment advisors and brokers."

Well, at least we can all rest easy knowing that only the newly hired brokers will be fired and that the old time partners with the big salaries and benefits will be ok.
