Yet somehow they find ways to pay bonuses to the corporate stooges and upper management that total more than my years pay every year. I'm not alone either and I'm sure there's dozens of people on this site going through the same thing I am if not worse.
And you feel the owners in the NHL are doing the same thing to the players? The players who make more in a year to play a game
than you'll make in 10 years doing whatever you do? The guys who make more in an 8 year career to play a game
than police officers and fire fighters will get in 20 years to save peoples lives?
You really believe the players are being cheated by their bosses and owners the same way you are by yours? You really believe that cutting back the salaries of people who make hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars is akin to cutting back the salaries of people who make tens of thousands of dollars?
