Here is letter #2:
$9,165 an hour--Wow Lloyd, You're a Big Earner
To: Lloyd C. Blankfein, Goldman Sachs
So I just read online that your salary in 2010--including all of those delightful perks that just put a smile on one's face--is $19.06 million.
And your hourly wage is $9,165. That's great! Do you even collect that much when you take lunch?
Do you realize that by working a mere two hours you earn as much as someone who works full-time at minimum wage earns in a year?
Wondering if I could have your job for say, three hours a week. Would that be too much to ask?
You can leave the stuff that you don't like about your job to me: talking to the press about Occupy Wall Street, testifying at hearings about board members who are charged with insider trading. You know, all that icky stuff.
You can still wheel-and-deal and be your macho master-of-the-universe self. I'll just do the three hours of grunt work you don't like each week.
What do you say, Lloyd? Deal?
