Why am I being punished? I was just a loyal employee of IBRC

I WORK for IBRC. I joined the bank 15 years ago, it was more or less my first real job, having graduated with a BSc in Finance.
I loved my job then and I loved the bank. I worked through my lunch, stayed late, arrived early. I worked hard. It was a great place to work. My colleagues were my friends, my family and I believed the people at the top were special, talented and I aspired to be like them.
Everything began to change for me in 2008. When all the problems were disclosed, one by one, I felt as if a close relative had been accused of some repulsive act. And then the bank was nationalised and reality hit home.
