Jimmy: Hagadone Offers Fair Wage

RE: Eagle Eye: Duane Hagadone still 'King of CdA'/Huckleberries Online

JimmyMac: To be fair, there were plenty of times when I thought I could be paid more while working in the empire. In hindsight, analyzing incomes is a huge part of my business today and I guarantee you that Duane's pay (**at least in the hospitality business**) is right in line with and nothing less than his competitors. The key difference is that we don't know, see, or are as familiar with the owners and majority stakeholders of the types of businesses that are Hagadone's direct competitors. Those competitor's -- Hyatt, Four Season's, Oriental Express, Fairmont, etc. etc., seem to be very comparable with their pay and profits among the executive level - nothing too out fo the ordinary. The major difference is Duane is one of the last remaining private individual principals in this business. More here.

Question: Have you ever worked for Duane Hagadone? What capacity? Were you paid a fair wage?
