I hope OurCEO is paying attention to what is going on with respect to his peers around the country...

More than $700K compensation per year - a freeze is a sacrifice?

from KIRO Radio

Faced with massive cuts, faculty at the University of Washington had some suggestions for University President Mark Emmert at a meeting Tuesday night.

"We could take half of your salary and save ten jobs. There's no reason that that should not be done," faculty member Steve Lee.

Emmert says his $800,000 salary, and just about everything else, is on the table.

The university faces cuts of 15 to 20 percent. The school may lay off hundreds of faculty and staff, as well as greatly reduce the number of students.

Bob, go thou and do likewise?
