Quote of the Week - Price

"Here I am walking around making $1 million a year, and I'm working shoulder to shoulder with people in her situation who are every bit as good and valuable as I am." 
~ Dan Price

This is such a great example of being in integrity. Of understanding that our world is a collective process and life is a shared experience, not a competition. Price set a policy of elevating salaries in his company toward a goal of $70,000 while butting his own to that figure. He did this to make sure that all of his employees could have manageable lives based on their salaries in their environment. 

Valuing people for who they are and that they are, not based on their job description is still a pretty radical idea.

If you were in Price's position, what would you do?
