Just got around to reading the news release of Kelly Kings income for 2011. His total income is only $7,500,000. Not a bad job. The hourly income is only a little over $3,000 per hour. This is just about 350 times the starting salary at BB&T. You know a person can live on that if you pinch your pennies.
Gee. I don't think you understand the world of investing. Stock holders are the owners of the company and they are entitled to a fair share of the profits as dividends. They do not give you back your own money.
WOW. CEO just got a 2.5% increase in salary. This means we the owners of the company should get a minimum of a 2.5% increase in the dividend. Labor should not get increases if the owners are getting nothing. As the GOOD BOOK says, "Fair is Fair".
WOW. CEO total pay fell nearly 30%. This means we the owners of the company should get a minimum of a 30% reduction in the dividend. Labor should not get reductions if the owners are getting nothing. As the GOOD BOOK says, "Fair is Fair".
