Do you never want to see yourselves making what you would consider "too much"?

Now I probably don't have the earning potential to drop a few million in the bank per year, but I do, to make 3-400K.....Is that too much?

Should I have a cap on what I am able to make?

Nope, just asking a simple question.

I don't think I would ever let myself get in a situation where I was getting paid 10x what I am worth.

And if my decisions lost the company millions, I would be fired. Immediately.

But that has little to do with pay. IMO

Too bad that's not true of non-elected government employees. Even though I understand the reasons why; doesn't mean I have to agree...

So some of you do want to be told how much you can make, say even if you open your own business?
