According to media reports WW's total compensation in 2015 was €8.8 million. In round numbers that's 7,500,000.

At the the advertised salary of 21/25,000 p.a. for mixed fleet Mr Walsh makes 357/300 times more. At the 10-12 more commonplace salary he makes 750/625 times more.

Does anyone deserve to be paid 750 times, or even 300 times as much as a front line employees?

Put in the context of Fat Cat Wednesday Mr. Walsh makes 2076 an hour (301 days at 12 hrs). It takes him 13 1/2 hours to earn the annual average U.K. salary of 28,200. Makes him a Fat Cat early Tuesday morning.

Something terribly wrong with these numbers. He has already earned more this year than many of his employees will earn in a year.

When you get paid 1 million a week for kicking a football around for 90 minutes, nothing makes sense anymore!

The Shareholders may well disagree, but I take your point.

ZET states the problem. in modern society, the shareholders come before the customers in priority. I fully appreciate how the stock market works (I have worked in The City of London) but the old adage 'look after the customer and the customer will look after you' is long gone.

To be fair, that is also the customer's fault. As customers have proved that they will change carrier for a 10 reduction - there is no incentive to keep them.

As customers we have also learnt to expect and accept complacency in the service and the product. We can pay easily 20000-30000 for a motor vehicle, which should it go wrong most distributors/garages will spend more time fobbing you off than sorting it. When they do it is not unlike getting an appointment with your GP!
