    Apparently fending off a lawsuit, and he's a wife-beater.

    It seemed too good to be true. On April 13, with reporters from the New York Timesand NBC News hovering nearby, Dan Price, the young chief executive officer ofGravity Payments, a Seattle-based credit card processing company, told his staff he was raising their minimum salary to $70,000 a year. Some employees would see their wages double. There was more: He planned to cut his own $1.1 million compensation to help cover the cost. The idea came to him, he’d later tell the media, after talking to a friend who earned less than he did. He’d read about a study showing that extra income improves the happiness of people who earn less than about $75,000. “It’s not about making money; it’s about making a difference,” Price told the Today Show, one of two dozen TV interviews he did in the days following the announcement.

    Price’s story rocketed around the world, a capitalist fairy tale to counter growing inequality. With his tousled long hair and dark brown eyes, Price combined Brad Pitt’s smolder and Boo Boo Bear’s aw-shucks demeanor to become an articulate and attractive messenger. Rush Limbaugh denounced him as a socialist. Jesse Venturachristened him Robin Hood.

    Granted I skimmed it because reading the words of the blowhard druggie is almost as bad a listening to him but how is it a "disaster" other than a pending lawsuit between two brothers that was probably going to happen anyway? It seems like the business is still humming along just fine.

    And if wife beating and drugs closed your business NYC would have to roll up all the bridges tomorrow.

    It doesn't fit his worldview. Please provide more "proof".
