FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) – The bonuses paid to AIG executives have turned pillars of a Connecticut community into pariahs and have workers fearing for their safety.

An executive who feared retribution and spoke Friday on condition of anonymity says AIG workers in ritzy Fairfield County are “very, very nervous” about security.

Corporate officials have told employees to avoid sporting the company logo and to travel in pairs at night.

Activists plan to visit the homes of AIG executives Saturday in an attempt to deliver letters highlighting the economic problems of ordinary Americans.

Security companies say the crisis is creating business in everything from bomb-sniffing dogs to bodyguards.
