If it's Wexner, can he hook me up with a cruise on Limitless? I'll give him 20 bucks for gas.
Wexner.

Ive never seen the thing in person, has to be truly amazing.

20 on gas? You just want him to start it and turn it off?

haha.

I've seen it in person...you are correct, it is amazing. Seen plenty of yachts before, but Limitless is by far the most memorable. When I saw it in Lauderdale, they said it was about $25K to fill it up, and it took an entire day.

John Barth is the CEO of my company, Johnson Controls. He ranks 267th on the list. Over $8 million a year in his total package. And my job is still going to Mexico. Focker should take a friggen pay cut for the good of the employees. Can you say WAY OVER PAID!!!!

That is why your job is going to Mexico... he wants the stockholders to let him keep his job..... I swear... if this country's government doesn't open their eyes and start putting trade tariffs and barriers on products... ALL OF OUR JOBS WILL GO OUT OF THE COUNTRY.

I have to say that some of this CEO pay recently seems to be legalized stealing. A few of these cats they have highlighted on CNBC, for publicly traded companies, the pay is exorbinant. Poll the investors and see what they think about $40-50 million a year compensation, awarded by family and friends, when the manufacturing heads overseas. It really is sad all the way around. We are quickly going to be a service economy, potentially self destructing.
