NEW YORK, NY – Merck Pharmaceuticals president and CEO James Carrey announced today that – because of all the pain and suffering his company has inflicted over the past year – he will be taking a voluntary pay cut.
“I have stepped up to the plate and made a huge personal sacrifice,” explained Carrey. “I will only be making $20 million this year. My wife may have to get a second job to support our family and we are looking into selling one of our summer homes.”
Carrey is a shining example of good in a world so often conflated with greed.
