  • Media: NYT’s ‘wife bonus’ story turns out to be bunk

    WGBH - 06/08/2015

    I’m shocked, shocked to learn that the “wife bonus” story has been called into question.

    Last month I shared with my ethics class an opinion piece that appeared in The New York Times claiming, among other things, that some rich women on Manhattan’s Upper East Side were paid “wife bonuses” by their husbands based on “how well she managed the home budget, whether the kids got into a ‘good’ school — the same way their husbands were rewarded at investment banks.”

    The article, by a “social researcher” who goes by the name Wednesday Martin, was based on her forthcoming book, “Primates of New York.”
