Sure.  I understand that if you got a 5% commission on a $500,000 
farm sale it wouldn't take too many farm sales and you would be 
earning $100,000 plus.

Agreed.  I am only going on th, as to what these 60 high earners do.

But as Gareth Morgan said, they also need to *preform* if they are 
going to be retained.  If they aren't preforming they are clearly not 
the international class managers they claim to be and should not be 
paid as such.
>Just chopping staff seems to be rather simplistic to me.
Sure.  Maybe those staffing levels are justified, and all companies 
are different in their requirements.  But when one company has a 
high paid staffing level *twice* that of a similar company in the 
same industry then I think it is fair to ask questions. SNOOPY
