How likely is your CEO to follow the lead of one university head now sharing his salary with the organization’s lowest paid workers.

    Bravo! The president's salary, converted to an hourly rate is the equivalent of $168/hour. Now those people who were making $7.25 an hour may not have the education or skill set that Raymond Burse has, but they probably work just as hard in their own jobs. It really is hard to justify that kind of disparity in wages.
    I hope other "leaders" follow his example.

    This is a total Gimick! Of course it will garnish publicity, and possibly increrase enrollment. Small price to pay for a little risk with huge potential returns. What other benefits is Mr. Burse receiving in lieu of his decision to reduce his "Official" salary?

    He may not be getting any sort of additional benefit. $260,000 is still a very big salary. And if he used to work at the school, perhaps he is also personally invested in seeing the school get onto a better footing.
