Just try to imagine Lee Scott or Mike Duke saying this.

Apparently, John Mackey of Whole Foods wants to be everywhere these days. This is from an interview w/ Reason magazine:
By not taking any money, it’s pretty obvious that I’m not trying to get as much money out of the company as I can. I mean, I was a co-founder. I have enough money. I’m not superwealthy the way Bill Gates or Steven Jobs is, but I have plenty of money. On Maslow’s “hierarchy of needs,” once you get past a certain point, money is less satisfying and other needs—self-esteem, self-actualization, self-transcendence—become more important. So I would say it’s good for the morale of our organization that the CEO only makes a dollar a year.
Lee Scott would have a rebuttal, but he's too busy counting all the money he STILL makes from Walmart.
