Let's say you had an employment contract that promised you compensation of $120,000 for the next 18 months of work. Then one day your employer says to you, "I'll pay you $80,000 today and you don't have to show up for work ever again. Oh, by the way, you can pocket the dough and go to work for someone else tomorrow if you want."
What would you do?
What if it was $1,200,000 for the next 18 months of work against $800,000 to go away?
Well, one lucky retirement age S.O.B. had an offer of $8 MILLION to leave his failing company today instead of getting $12 Million to keep working for the losers for another year and a half.
He took the money and ran so fast.
