Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, cuts his salary by 90% to increase wages of his team

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Can you ever think of a CEO who reduced his own salary so that his team earns more? Mr. Price is the one who broke the stereotype and cut his salary by 90% to increase the salary of the whole team.

Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments gathered the team of 120 employees to tell the news that he is doubling the salary of some employees and by December 2017 the whole team’s salary will be doubled.

The average salary of an employee was $48000 but now after this decision 70 of them will be getting $70000 and in order to avoid bankruptcy, those who earn less than $70000 will be getting $5000 increment every year or a minimum of $50000, whichever is suitable.

To implement this, the salary of CEO will be reduced to $1 million a year to the same minimum like everyone else, until the company’s profits recoup.

Mr Price told an English newspaper that he settled on the figure of $70,000 for all after reading a study published by the University of Princeton, which found that increase in income above that number did not have a significant positive impact on a person’s happiness.

According to The Independent, Mr Price said he “hadn’t even thought about” how he was going to adjust to earning 90 per cent less, adding: “I may have to scale back a little bit, but nothing I’m not willing to do – I’m single, I just have a dog.

“I’m a big believer in less,” he added. “The more you have, sometimes the more complicated your life gets.”
