Bud Konheim recently stated that people making $35,000.00 per year should stop whining and be grateful because in developing nations that would be considered wealthy.
I live in America; and, yes, I make more than that.
That is one of the most illogical statements I have ever heard. It pretty well states how many people feel, especially the one-per-centers.
The same group that cries they have to pay out hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in salary and bonus in order to attract talent.
The same talent that has paid out millions and billions of dollars in fines?
The same talent that puts together some of the most ridiculous process and procedures in their companies have ever seen?
The same talent that proves daily that you can be incapable and incompetent and still make millions and billions of dollars because the people you look down on have the intelligence and work ethic to make it for you regardless of your own ineptitude?
Quick question here: if people do not have enough money to purchase what you sell—how much money will you make?
It is obvious you care not a whit about that: the tip of your nose is blinding you.
By your actions and inactions—YOU do not deserve $35,000.00 per year salary.
Tell you what, Bud, and all those that agree with you. Live for one year off of $35,000.00 per year gross salary.
Let me know how that works out for you.
