The President of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz (you might also recognize him from his past work, the war in Iraq), is in serious trouble of losing his job due to his mixture of business and pleasure. Specifically he gave his girlfriend a promotion in the organization along with a raise far exceeding any precedent.
April 14 (Bloomberg) -- World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz's hold on his job weakened as the U.K. and Germany declined to join the U.S. in backing him.
Wolfowitz has ``damaged the bank,'' Hilary Benn, the U.K. development secretary, said today. His German counterpart, Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul, said he must ``decide for himself whether he can continue to fulfill his duties credibly.''
Wolfowitz claims that people just hate him because of his previous job. I don't know about you but I'd be pretty ticked off if he was my boss.
