Salary...What? Maybe I am behind the times but 400,000 ++++ some. I can
not believe that Jere Ratcliffe is making that much. The scouts need to
have a meeting over this. Non-Profit. What is he in it for Money or the
Scouting of it?
We have parents and scout masters who are scrambling for pennies to get kids
on tips. Get the camping gear that doesn't leak all over the kids, get the
proper cook ware. I can't even begin to talk about the Uniform.
25.00 for a shirt?
Pants 32.00 and upward?
Official book and additional gear 6.50 paperback...300.00 back packs?
None of the clothing really last too long.
For crying out loud we even have to pay for merit badges. We have to pay
exorbitant rats for materials to teach kids. Let's get a grip.
Let's talk. We can hardly afford to send my two little brothers on trips.
Here we are paying an executive nearly a half million dollars. That may not
sound like a lot from a business standpoint, but it is a lot from and
individual standpoint. How do we make amends to Professional Scouter's
salaries. Please let me know. I would like to get a committee to help
protest such extravagant wages.
