"Dan Price, the CEO who slashed his own salary in 2015 to boost his company’s minimum salary to $70,000 a year, has done it again.
The 35-year-old is the head of Gravity Payments, a credit card processing company in Seattle that acquired Idaho company ChargeItPro three years, according to ABC News. With the Idaho-based employees recently moving into a new office building, Price flew in to make a visit, and had surprise announcement to go along with it — he was giving all employees earning the current minimum salary a $10,000 raise with plans on raising it to a minimum of $70,000 by 2024."

Cutting the Health Benefits of 1,900 Whole Food Workers Saved World's Richest Man Jeff Bezos What He Makes in Less Than Six Hours
"When billionaire Jeff Bezos cut health benefits on September 13 for part-time workers at his grocery store Whole Foods the richest man in the world saved the equivalent of what he makes from his vast fortune in just a few hours.
That's according to an analysis from Decision Data's "Data in the News" series, which found that Bezos could cover the entirety of annual benefits for part-time employees who work less than 30 hours a week with what he makes from stocks and investments in just a fraction of a day.
"Doing a quick calculation with existing publicly available numbers shows that Bezos makes more money than the cost of an entire year of benefits for these 1,900 employees in somewhere between 2-6 hours," the study says."
