Re: ICBC executives make drunken sailors blush (Guest comment, Aug. 22)
I was a sailor and I wish I had even the expense account ICBC executives have.
The unbelievable pay these people are getting is nothing short of disgusting, and mostly at the expense of customers whose rates keep going up.
As with so many other companies and employers, wages keep going up and up, mostly due to the people in charge increasing their own wages.
One particular statement in the column bothers me though: “Government monopolies like ICBC need to be constantly monitored by politicians.” Are you kidding me?
Politicians are as bad, if not worse, for giving themselves raises and huge benefits while cutting back on everything to the taxpayers.
They’re the last people we need watching how bureaucrats manage our money. We need people that can honestly relate to the taxpayer to watch the bandits.
