Indeed, hard work for a major CEO means a 10 a.m. meeting sitting around a conference table being served coffee and danish by someone making 1/200th of his pay, followed by a two+ hour two martini lunch, followed by a 2 p.m. meeting sitting around a conference table being served coffee and danish by someone making 1/200th of his pay, and at 4 p.m. going to the Country Club for a couple of more martinis, followed by a filet mignon dinner, followed by cigars and port. And -- woe is he -- he has to get up at 8 a.m. and do it all over again. Poor guy. No wonder he makes the big bucks. If he does good, he is paid a multi-million-dollar bonus for laying off hundreds of workers. And if the company goes to hell in a hand basket under his leadership, he negotiates a multi-million dollar golden-parachute severance package. Ah, yes, no wonder he gets paid the big bucks.
