In other words “you’re not even human but a puppet to do with as we will”.;D
Can’t do this today. Its unprofessional and can bring in law suits.
Since it was Wally, he is still being grossly overpaid!
On the bright side for Catbert, his stock options have put him in the catbird seat this year. Means that the remaining peasants will still have a job. You’re welcome.
FROM THE ECONOMIC POLICY INSTITUTE (As of August 2019)
CEO compensation has grown 940% since 1978 ———Typical worker compensation has risen only 12% during that time.
The increased focus on growing inequality has led to an increased focus on CEO pay. Corporate boards running America’s largest public firms are giving top executives outsize compensation packages. Average pay of CEOs at the top 350 firms in 2018 was $17.2 million—or $14.0 million using a more conservative measure. (Stock options make up a big part of CEO pay packages, and the conservative measure values the options when granted, versus when cashed in, or “realized.”)
CEO compensation is very high relative to typical worker compensation (by a ratio of 278-to-1 or 221-to-1). In contrast, the CEO-to-typical-worker compensation ratio (options realized) was 20-to-1 in 1965 and 58-to-1 in 1989. CEOs are even making a lot more—about five times as much—as other earners in the top 0.1%. From 1978 to 2018, CEO compensation grew by 1,007.5% (940.3% under the options-realized measure), far outstripping S&P stock market growth (706.7%) and the wage growth of very high earners (339.2%). In contrast, wages for the typical worker grew by just 11.9%.
C’est la vie, peasants!
Is this tie treatment why all the Dilbert characters wear polo shirts in the modern, up-to-date strip?
Human resources run by less than human overlords…
Since the little furball is already against you, go ahead and rub him the wrong way.
shortly Wally will begin to offer coffee packets from the break room… “for sale”…!
Wally gets a base salary!?!
And when unemployment is high, companies can get away with it.
And Wally can’t change jobs like most of us would have done because few places will hire anybody that doesn’t work. Take the cut and be happy that it isn’t more….
Cat-scratch Catbert, evil H.R. Director and destroyer of ties!
If Wally weren’t such a peaceful slug, he’d call in a mean vet to put Catbert down!
