Mr. Pinkley: CONGRATULATIONS, CATHY! You can have a teensy cost-of-living increase whose only impact on your salary will be to dump you into a higher tax bracket......Or you can choose our bare bones benefits package, which takes a chunk of every paycheck as your mandatory employee contribution! SEE?? You can have less immediately, or plan ahead to have less in the future! Two unbelievable choices, and either one can be all yours!! The '90s boss: Part manager, part game show host. Woman: Another contestant just passed out from delirium, Mr. Pinkley.
