No sympathy for those not willing to take control of their own destiny/careers
While I understand many of the staff would be peeved about this man making as much money as he did.
My simple response is........Don't like it....then quit and form your own company.
There is NOTHING worse than childish adult whiners who complain about others making more money, but they CHOOSE to do nothing about it...except stomp thier feet and whine.
People who build companies ARE worth the money, because the people on the lower level obviously don't have the drive or determination to do anything on thier own. It's the risk takers that benefit the most and deservedly so.
Don't like where you work or feel your underpaid? Then do something about it or shut up.
No one is forcing the employees to stay there and work for less than they feel they are worth. The only person who limits you ....IS YOU.
Children whine because things may not be fair, but as an adult, you can do something about it. Take charge of your life and stop letting others lead you around like a horse. If there is no gun pointed at your head...you have the power to control your path.
Lets see a group of employees strike out on their own and form a competitor to this company. They can then run the company as they choose fit. It will either be successful or they will learn there is more to a successful company than simply working 8-5.
Who's to say that Paul Pinder didn't earn his wages years ago when building the company from the ground up?
When he joined Capita, it had 33 employees and revenues of £1.3 million.
Sweat equity in the early years will reap its rewards later on. Take control of your life and success if you want more than what you currently have.
