A recent college graduate is at a job interview. He’s young man who is properly dressed and somewhat cocky. The hiring manager says, “So you’re a recent engineering graduate from a great school! What kind of starting salary are you looking for?” The young man says, “In the area of $125,000 per year, depending on the benefit package”. The hiring manager says, “Well, what would you say to a benefits package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, a company matching 401K to 50 percent of salary, and a company car leased every two years, say a red corvette?” “Wow, are you kidding”, says the young man. “Yeah”, says the hiring manager, “but you started it.”
