    Do we know the truth about him? Or Hanzi? Or any of them? I still don't believe Scot Salem is an actual engineer at this point in the show. He probably was at Kroc, but why would they need to hire another engineer at Sirius back then? And keep him to this day? I think they are all contract players. Howard's lies make everything seem suspect.

    Howard doesn't pay fuck all to anyone he doesn't have to. it sickens me to no end when Baba fuck face and Hein talk about how certain whack packers ask for things or money. they provide content and are a huge reason Howard has been successful yet they shouldn't be compensated??

    I still find it amazing that Gunky isn't bothered by the fact that he pays slave wages. Any multi-millionaire that has people he works w/ daily to put out a product that has directly resulted in his incredible wealth MUST feel some sense of responsibility towards his "co-workers." Right? Wiggy should feel HARRIBLE that Benjy, and other staff, had to live in storage units or sleep in a crawl space at work to make ends meet. Stern could take $5 million and divide it between staff (except Robin and Fred) and literally change their lives overnight.

    I don't get why he's so fucking cheap. My guess is that b/c he compensates Blobin so well, his conscience is clear.

    Cheap fuck.

    It's really to the point of odd behavior. Stern is really super rich. Probably worth $250M. (Guess?)

    He gave 1/2 to Allison then had to pay child support. Maybe that made him more bitter and miserly.

    Howard logic. Listen, no one is having this sour shoes on. He's lucky that I'm giving him some publicity so he can do his voices. I'm paying him in plugs

    About the same as Marks Friggin gets, a big fat cup of Jack squat

    Half a billion plus and he made it by exploiting the less fortunate, and he squeezes every fucking penny.

    Yeah really how does someone like Sal not lash out (even if only passive aggressively ) at Howard when being picked on for not having saved up a nest egg in preparation for Howies retirement? The disproportion in compensation is staggering and Howard doesn't really try to hide it when he says things like "How is Scott affording cigarettes..." It's so easy for him to lecture Sal about fiscal responsibility but I doubt he remembers what it's like to live hand to mouth. I'm not sure how he sleeps at night with that kind of wage discrepancy happening and knowing his employees are struggling.
