Lies, dam lies and statistics. This article misleading uses the 'average' for the bonus. A better 'stat' would be the median bonus: half make more, have make less. It would take 29 TVA employees making $40000/yr and only ONE making $3,640,000/yr to make the 'average' bonus $8,000. It that an honest 'average'? Guess who makes the bigger salary? Yep, you know him. That's a 90:1 difference in salary. Wonder why the Occupy movement has legs?
