Of course, Bank of America has plenty of cash on hand, in part because the US government (the one now ordering it to pay this worker less than a million dollars) has bailed the bank out to the tune of over $20 billion.
And while we're on the subject of the US government punishing a company for retaliating against whistleblowers, we should probably mention that the very same federal government has been going out of its way lately to try to imprison government whistleblowers. Apparently, it's okay when the federal government does it, but not when anyone else does it.
