The wage increase is too small
Some top dogs in a big Swedish bank are getting higher salary while the bank is stumbling and needs to get a government loan. To no surprise politicians and every other stupid “thinker” in the country needs to address this and act chocked. And all of them seem horrified by these “greedy MF’s”. Hardly no one mentioning that they also get their movable bonus taking away and this wage increase is a way to respond to this. In either case, why even care? If they are not eligible for that government loan they shouldn’t have in the first place, fine, let’s talk about that. But their salary is the banks business.
I actually think many of them are underpaid. Sure you might tighten the belt a bit during a financial crisis, but under normal circumstances they should have more money. Most executives and directors in Sweden are criminally poor. There should be a regressive tax law that makes those you earns the most, pay the least and vice versa. The people who produce the most and consequently earns the most should be excluded from paying tax. The lightweights however should be paying more in regard to their income. That would be a fair society.
