I swear I have absolutely NO sympathy for these people. None! Each member of my family and myself works extremely hard every day, and it's just to keep up ( just to keep up) with this bull**it economy we wallow in, and these rotten CEOs are soooooo stressed?
It's a joke. They will have more money in their parachutes than anyone in my family will ever see in 100 lifetimes!!!!
Go ahead, people! Give me all a thumbs down, but I don't give a s**t if they are "stressed" this year.
I started my own lawn service with $55k in accounts in two years and doing well with two zero turn mowers and such now all paid for.
I agree with BluBal42. Now making 460 times the pay of normal humans in America, CEOs who's average compensation jumped 16% more in 2013... had BETTER be talented enough to make 90 million family-sustaining jobs appear out of nowhere or to fly and remain airborne indefinitely. We aren't fooled by the fools, they committed acts of terrorism by taking outrageous pay in this economy, now making a REAL one with enterprise and prosperity for all needs to happen-- or else.
i don't know who decides the salries/perks but they are all vulgar in the amount they receive. NO ONE is worth that much money. Consumers are fickle and advertisers start pushing ads on little ones as young as six months old. Prices of mrechandise, quality of customer service, quality of product, consumer mind changes-all play a part. For years no one knew what CEO's made or what their bonuses were. It is hard to believe a company is in trouble when CEO's and stockholders are making LOTS of money but the employees expected to do the work and keep the companies afloat and making money are the ones who are doing all the work. BIG SALARIES AND PERKS DO NOT GUARANTEE QUALITY IN THE CORPORATE OFFICES. LOOK AT WAL-MART, SEARS, JCPENNEY, ALL THE STORES THAT HAVE GONE OUT OF BUSINESS (SOME TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT ANOTHER BRANCH OF A CORPORATE CONGLOMERATE. Greed can kill anything. People are fickle in the restaurants they frequent. A food ordered one day does not guarantee that it will be popular the next day. CEO'S blame lots of things but salaries that are too high and stockholders getting their share means someone has to pay. Consumers are tired of paying salaries they will never see in seven lifetimes. With government in too many areas of life, health insurance costs will increase, taxpayers will be paying more to run an incompetent government where Congress and Senate get paid tooo much also for doing very little but crippling every area of life and they still take home big paychecks and retirements....look how many millionaires are in office and they have NO interest in retiring or taking a pay cut or paying more for their 'almost free' medical care and that of their 'aides.' Check out a documentary titled "War With No Name." Everyone should be required to see it and see how the government is totally pulling the legs out from everyone...how can corporations not feel a twinge? Look at the financial institutes, insurance company execs, (anyone
ever heard of "the Seven Sisters?" At some point, consumers have to say STOP to all the greed. Maybe the time has come. Is anyone really surprised???? WE PAY FOR PRODUCTS, MISTAKES MADE BY THE BUYERS AS TO WHAT CUSTOMERS WILL WANT AND PROBABLY A DOZEN OR MORE HIDDEN COSTS WE WILL NEVER KNOW ABOUT. Marketing companies are targeting younger and younger tv viewers and it is only going to get worse. Maybe some companies want to open too many stores and there is not really a market for what they are selling.. Some of these vulgar salaries could be used for more positive company programs like CUSTOMER SERVICE, BETTER MERCHANDISE, PRODUCING PRODUCTS IN THE USA AND TEACHING EXECS HOW TO LIVE ON LESS AND GIVE PAY RAISES BASED ON PERFORMANCE TO ALL EMPLOYEES.
