CEO Cuts His Pay, Raises All Workers' Pay To $70,000 Per Year Minimum


More like Dan Price, please. This is truly putting your money where your mouth is. Gravity Payments is a credit card processing firm located in Seattle, and Dan Price is the CEO. Mr. Price has decided to do more than think or talk about income inequality. He's taking action. The first thing he did was cut…

Make him President!

Bob Slatten said...

Brilliant!

jadedj said...

jackiesue--And she will, I am sure.

DSWS---I agree. But, what does that say about this society when a businessman with a conscience and empathy is considered odd. Sad really.

Bob Slatten---I'd use his company if I had need of it...for sure.

You're just trying to restore my faith in humanity! Well, nice try, J!

Whoa!!!
he IS a prince, but not the obnoxious and arrogant kind.
thanks for this little shot in the hopefulness.... certainly worth coming out of hibernation for.

Professor C---I failed to mention that restoration also requires that you shut off all electronics...cancel any excursions outside of the house...and tuck yourself in bed under a fine granny made quilt. You might want to consider duct tape for the eyes as well...just in case some nastiness seeps under the quilt.

Harlequin---Sorry dear one...see Mr C above :(

Hel, I'd be willing to come out of retirement just to go to work for this guy.

A man whose value is far beyond his wealth. I'm not a religious person, but even if life-after death is just an after-glow of warm memories, this guy is going to redefine immortality.

Can you imagine the ripple effects of his actions?

Bob Connor---I'm pretty sure he isn't a typical CEO...based on photos I've seen of him. Also, in some of those photos there are many of his employees. Of course they are all beaming and clapping. For sure, there is a ripple effect...right down into all of those families. It makes me feel good just thinking about it.

Amazing story. I was sure I must be mis-hearing things when they showed this on the TV news the other night. It would be nice if this had a ripple effect; inspired some copycats. But that only happens with bad stuff.
