3. You earned at least $100,000 as an executive from Bain in 2001 and 2002, separate from investment earnings according to filings with State of Massachusetts. Can you give an example of anyone else you personally know getting a six figure income, not dividend or investment return, but actual income, from a company they had nothing to do with? Thanks to a great diary from Kitty
Try to get your attention to Kitty's diary.
I was reading the diary when it hit me. Waaaa!
Who gets 100,000 for doing nothing. Waa!
This is NOT believable.
On what planet do people receive a paycheck that substantial and have NO responsibilities???
Who How Where does that happen?
Sometimes you might keep a person on pay as they are on their way out of a position. No need to fire someone as their job winds down. Sometimes people take their sick leave just before exiting a job or retiring. But this does not look the same.
This is really just a bit too much for the American public to "get".
People in some administrative positions get sabbaticals/administrative leave. But when they do ...... They are replaced with people who can take their place and responsibilities. Your name comes off the board and someone else's name goes on.
In light of the Enron fiasco, boards of many organizations and businesses when through countless "governance training". Big boards, small boards, for profit and nonprofit boards have all become aware of the responsibilities of their own board members.
So how is someone in charge but then when not convenient suddenly retroactively not in charge.
This is to me the height of arrogance or just plain disconnect to have ownership of a business and benefit from the business but "have no responsibility.
Isn't that what Enron was about?
Is this the kind of president we want? One who wants and looks have the job, get paid for it but in the end retroactively disavow responsibility for what occurs during the presidency.
