Biz: Fortunately, not every CEO is a scrooge when it comes to jobs

  • If last year was the worst of it, we survived its best punch and are still fighting. With [businesses] like us, it’s not about the exact unemployment rate – it’s about how many people are worried about losing their jobs. And the latter has definitely come down.
  • Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz • Describing his decision to completely kill his $840,000 salary in 2009 – and knock executive pay by 10% or more – to prevent major layoffs. Katz plans to slowly revert back once the recession dies down – except he’ll cut his only salary by 15%. Awesome. • source
