Google top executives to earn $1 each in 2005
You don't need to convince all of the people, all of the time, some of the people some of the time is usually good enough. Google big wigs take no pay in 2005 after cashing in 100's of millions in stocks in 2004...
You'd be forgiven for thinking i don't like Google, but it's not really true, i dislike some of their practices and have issues with their non communications strategy. What i object to most though, is the assumption that we're all stupid.
Reuters report that Larry curly and mo will be earning $1 this year each as salary. I'm guessing this is for several reason:
- To keep a lot of millionaires (G employees) with their feet on the ground by setting an example
- To garner some good favor with the press
- Maybe some kind of tax reasons, well beyond my knowledge to really even speculate on
It seems so cynical...
