Gravity Payments CEO takes 90% pay cut to give workers huge raise



Gravity CEO Dan Price has pledged to make sure all of his staffers make at least $70,000 annually in the next three years.


CEO Dan Price took a 90% pay cut and slashed his company's profits just so he could give his employees a raise.

Price, who heads up the Seattle payment processing firm Gravity Payments that he founded, has pledged to make sure all of his staffers make at least $70,000 annually in the next three years.

To do that he's cutting his $1 million salary to $70,000, and dipping into the firm's annual $2 million in profits.

This will double the pay of about 30 of his workers and will mean significant raises for an additional 40.

Price told employees of the new pay policy at a meeting Monday. For several moments there was stunned silence before people broke into applause and high fives said Phillip Akhavan, a merchants relations worker whose $43,000 salary immediately jumped 16% to $50,000.

Price decided to hike his employees pay after he read a study about happiness. It said additional income can make a significant difference in a person's emotional well being up to the point when they earn $75,000 a year.






Percy Sledge, Who Sang ‘When a Man Loves a Woman,’ Dies at 74


By JOE COSCARELLI
APRIL 14, 2015

Percy Sledge, the R&B singer whose soulful ballad of eternal love and rejection, “When a Man Loves a Woman,” topped the charts in 1966, died on Tuesday in Baton Rouge, La. He was 74.

His death was confirmed by Artists International Management, which represented him. Mr. Sledge had liver cancer, for which he underwent surgery in 2014, Mark Lyman, his agent and manager, said.

Mr. Sledge, sometimes called the King of Slow Soul, was a sentimental crooner and one of the South’s first soul stars, having risen to fame from jobs picking cotton and working as a hospital orderly while performing at colleges and clubs on the weekends.

A Baby Is Born!


Animal Planet is privileged to bring you a remarkable event -- the birth of a giraffe on camera right here and on TV — from the Dallas Zoo. Katie the Giraffe, one of the friendliest and most charismatic of the Dallas Zoo's large herd, gave birth to a healthy calf at 5:50pm CT Friday, April 10. You're looking at the indoor facilities for giraffes at the Zoo's award-winning Giants of the Savanna habitat, including the maternity stall, where eight different cams are capturing every angle.
