He's a victim too....JC Penney needed to give him that money because he was surrendering UNVESTED stock options back to Apple. They lured him away with this payment. Had Johnson stayed with Apple, he would be 100 Million dollars RICHER today. That's a BIG loss....HUGE. JCP did him NO FAVORS.
Ron Johnson is NO victim. And when he left, it wasn't at the $100 million you mentioned. The employees who no longer have a job and the ones still there that are struggling to pay their bills are the victims. Ron got the title he wanted - CEO. And he knew what he was giving up to get that title. He does not and will not have any money worries -unlike the many he is leaving behind in his wake. The final chapter is still waiting to be written on the elderly collecting or hoping to collect their meager pensions that may or may not be there once he is done destroying this company. He should cover all the mirrors in his house so he doesn't have to look at himself. He will rot in hell.
You can say whatever you like about him, but had he stayed at Apple and retained his options, he would have 100 Million extra dollars in his checking account. Joining JCP is the worst mistake he has EVER made. Maybe he'll fire 10 thousand extra JCP workers just for spite.
