The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) last night [TUE] confirmed it had parted company with its fat cat boss Stuart Earley, who has been slammed by charity experts and animal rights campaigners for taking home more than £200,000 a year.
It is understood that the charity’s board demanded showdown talks with the 59-year-old after suffering a significant slump in donations, with regular contributors refusing to donate in protest at his massive salary.
Sorta depends on how big the organisation is:
Mr Earley, who oversees the SSPCA’s £14.2m annual income and its 358 employees, earned a staggering £216,000 in 2015 – a salary of £185,000 and a £31,000 bonus – as well as pension contributions of £31,000.
1.4% of turnover.
Makes that $20 million a year they pay the CEO of the $450 billion Walmart seem a bargain, doesn’t it?
