And please get your facts right, Nike's CEO gets 2m USD a year. Havard's President gets 700k USD a year. Only 1 in 10k families in USA earn 5.5m a year and 1 in 10k is supposed to be rich. The 20th well paid celebrity gets around 8m USD a year, talking of hollywood actors that is. So I guess not more than 50-100 hollywood actors in USA earn over $5.5m a year, even if it is slightly wrong, it won't be over 500 or so. And I am talking of like 10k families in USA who earn over 5.5m USD a year, which isn't too small, but definitely not big considering USA's population. And only big business owners have personal incomes worth $5.5m a year, those whose businesses are worth at least a few hundred million dollars, which is just a few thousand in USA.
So stupid I know know where to start. Nike CEO gets 2m a year? Maybe base salary. Ever hear of fucking stock options? Other benefits? If he get fired he gets a hefty golden parachute worth multiples of 2m. Obama makes a paltry 400k a year, are you going to use him as an example too? The 100th richest celebrity earns 10m. Wrong again. http://www.forbes.com/wealth/celebrities#p_10_s_arank_
There are nearly 3m millionaires in the US. Are you going to tell me that only a few thousand earn more than 5.5m???? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millionaire
Fuck, out of my personal network I know at least 30-40 people who either, they, or their parents, easily clear 5.5m And Im sure as I get older Ill know many more. Dont sit there and tell me theres only 10k people in the US making more than 5.5m.
