Suits

About a decade ago, maybe more, a factory burned down somewhere in New England. It took a year to rebuild. For that whole year the owner of the factory kept paying his employees their full salaries until the plant reopened. I remember hearing an interview with the owner - I don't remember his name, or what the factory made, but I remember that the interviewer asked the owner why he kept paying out these salaries. The owner shrugged. "How many suits can I wear?" he replied.

Wouldn't it be nice if just one CEO would turn down his $25 million salary and say, "Just give me five million, and use the rest to put 350 people back to work." He'd be a hero -- and he'd still have five million dollars.
