Intel executives and management cut 1,100 employees from the payroll, and mothballed factories in 2014.
If we strip out just the "stock awards" for the CEO, CFO, President and Chairman-of-the-fucking-Board then those 1,100 people could all have been retained at minimum wage.
(And if we strip out the "non-equity incentive plan compensation" those 1,100 people could have been retained at minimum wage PLUS health insurance!)
Look, even God doesn't need $11mil. No sane, healthy human being "needs" that much money. At that point, it's not about the money any more. It's about prestige and showing off, and glitz and glamour and bullshit like that. As a male friend of mine likes to say "It's about showing off how big your dick is."
It's good to be filthy fucking rich. You can make up any rules you want, including "I want it, I take it, and no one can stop me."
"The Golden Rule: Them that have the gold, make the rules."
It's Class Warfare, Bitches, and we need to fight back.
