I couldn't help compare remarks recently made by Lee: "Should school teachers be paid more than movie stars? Who is to say? The answer is not some committee that will force their decision on others ..."


... the following quotes from the linked article (call me a cynic, but I can't help smelling the blood of a committee):
"When the market isn't funding your business, and the dollars aren't there to fully fund all your priorities, then you have to look within your company to do things more efficiently," Jacobson said.

Jacobson said the company has also committed to cutting discretionary spending .... But he said no cuts will be made to executive salaries, which in May were boosted by "healthy, sizable raises."
