To the Gazette:

I wanted to make sure I heard this on the news correctly; as Hawker plunges forward into bankruptcy, their top "leaders" stand to have their already exorbitant salaries double so they will do their best?

Obviously, their best so far has brought the company to its knees. I am not sure we can afford to have them do even better. If I meet all of my targets at my job, I stand to bonus an extra few thousand dollars AND I get to keep my job.

I think the only bonus that should even be considered for this arrogant group is that they "might" be allowed to stay on. What a low blow for any of the hard workers of Beech that have already been shown the door through no fault of their own.
