    Was going to donate money, but decided to see salaries people were making. When I saw them I thought they are asking me to give when they make hundreds of thousands of dollars than I make. A disgraceful use of donations. No more till they lower the salaries being paid.

    Yeah, actually went to donate money to them but wanted to research this. Couldn’t believe the salaries and won’t until these aren’t absurd.
