Huge salaries for char­ity bosses

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Sir, – Char­ity they say be­gins at home! Well, I think char­ity be­gins at the top and it is high time at­ten­tion be paid to in­spect­ing the out­ra­geously high salaries that those in man­age­ment po­si­tions en­joy.

It does not fol­low that you ac­quire the best peo­ple for the job be­cause you of­fer such rich re­wards.

In fact high wages may well be at­tract­ing the op­po­site kind of per­son.

A per­son gen­uinely in­ter­ested in work­ing within a char­ity would not seek such riches and would be much more ded­i­cated.

Ox­fam does not just pro­vide lu­cra­tive salaries to their top peo­ple but also, I un­der­stand, gives them pres­ti­gious houses to live in. When I dis­cov­ered the amount a chief ex­ec­u­tive of a char­ity I was con­tribut­ing to re­ceived I im­me­di­ately can­celled my direct debit!

Need I say more? Robert Fin­lay. 6 Green­mount Drive, Burn­tis­land,
