Subject: File Number S7-33-10: Whistleblower Award Program

December 7, 2010

Dear Ms. Murphy

I just signed a petition saying:

"More whistleblowing about corporate crimes could have made the foreclosure crisis and economic meltdown less severe. Whistleblowers should never be forced or engouraged to take their concerns to their potentially corrupt bosses first: Those who go directly to the government deserve the strongest rewards and protections allowed by law."

With such a threat of unemployment right now there is enough pressure to upon employees to allow injustices within the workplace. The concept of speaking about corrupt business workings with potentially corrupt employers defeats the process of change. Please support pro-whistleblower rules and give employees a fair chance to better their workplace. Thank You, Erica Gonzales
