    True that!
    If a day goes by and you have learned nothing, I hope you got a lot of sleep.

    I haven't missed the point at all. I fully understand business and how it works.

    It's easy to ridicule what top executives make, when you don't understand their jobs.

    It's easy to look at a figure out of context, and declare it to be ridiculous.

    What percentage of a company's gross sales goes to top executive pay?

    What percentage of a company's gross sales goes to shareholder dividends?

    If the manager of a company that grosses $1.5 million a year in sales, makes $100k per year, what should the CEO of a company that grosses $2.4 BILLION a year in sales make?

    Reading some of these threads makes it easy to understand why the Class Envy War of the Left is working...
    Technical incompetence is NOT a sales tool....

    Let us know how that works out for you....

    Why would anyone want to sue you for being bought and paid for?

    The only monetary bonus I've seen in years has been based on additional efforts on my part, and I'm ok with that. One company did give out nice jackets for the holiday, but the last company I worked for didn't even appreciate what it's employees did on a daily basis. That's why I left it.

    If I had worked for Hostess, they would have perished long ago just from the loss of inventory...
