Today at my place of work on our intranet web site was an article about how our former CEO just retired and passed the torch. Well, the new CEO wrote comments about what a wonderful job he did. There is a comment section where he encourages all employees to go and leave their comments about what a great job the former CEO did.
Now let me tell you about this former CEO. He retired with a 20 million dollar retirement package. Last year his salary was 18 million dollars. Just so you know and you don't have to believe me if you dont want to but I am stating the truth, I work very hard for my company, I am consistently above their standards for quality and for production, but what does the person that enables the company to be able to pay salaries like that get. NOTHING! I have worked at this company for 4 years and have only had 1 raise. We used to get bonuses but they eliminated those 3 years ago. The price of health insurance premiums have doubled, my deductible has doubled and my copays on prescriptions have tripled.
Now I am not a greedy person but why should a CEO be able to make 666 times what the actual workers make? And that is just based on my salary as I know there are those that make less than me.
So even though I wont go to the company website and say it, I have 2 words for him. Screw You!
