Letter: Reduce and discover renewed benefit

Published:

 

I agree with the Aug. 11 editorial, “Bad timing for raise: Clark Public Utilities general manager receives 11 percent salary increase,” but would take the scenario a step further. I would ask for a reduction in wages, not because Wayne Nelson isn’t deserving (I do not claim to have knowledge on this issue), but because of the economics of our area. A salary of $150,000 should be sufficient for any CEO irregardless of company or affiliation.

All of us have to tighten our belts from time to time. I have actually found I like myself better and do better holding myself to the bare bones and enjoy the perks of living in this day and age, from time to time, rather than expecting them as a common diet.
