$758,918 per year?!
Thank you D Magazine for pointing out that the the total compensation package for the president of the not for profit Texas State Fair is $758,918 per year. No joke. You have to read the article, here. The business parts of me understand that in order to attract top talent you have to pay top dollar in the market economy, but the other parts of me wonder why you need to pay one man that much money to run the three week event? I mean seriously. How hard could it be? I'd do it for half. Now I know why it's so expensive to go to the state fair.
