Martin Sorrell makes $95,000,000 a year. Can we start a hashtag campaign against his salary the way people are petitioning Fedex on Twitter about the NRA?!

Yeah, it seems obscene compared to ours, but when you look at that guy’s work from day one with WPP, you might see things differently. How many people does WPP employ globally - directly or indirectly? And their total revenues? Do you not think it’s ok for the guy who was absolutely fundamental in making that happen, be compensated? Also, OP, you write words for a living. Words. There’s people out there making far less than you for saving lives, teaching our future and caring for others. Your salary is obscene compared to theirs, really.

Your opinion of Sir Martin Sorrell and his yearly pay seems to put you at odds with the people here. As a shareholder, and someone who votes to approve his compensation yearly, why do you think I should be voting against it? You do nothing to elaborate why you are equating him with the NRA. He has done good things for his holding company, including building it from the ground up since the very beginning. The industry moves in waves, sometimes economic factors require downsizing, but the global conglomerate that is WPP remains the biggest of its kind globally. As its leader, and a person who understands our business very well from a macro economic level, his expertise has proven sufficient for his compensation. Plus, he has a young child at home, do you want to deprive his children?

Rolling on floor laughing hearing people defend S Martin’s Pay. WPP stands for why pay people. He earned 1444 times more than his average employer, a statistic only bested in the U.K. by the owner of a South Africa. Diamond mine

Sorrell doesn’t make that much a year. He earned $95m last year because his WPP shares vested. IIRC his actual salary is in the $10m range (still WAY TOO MUCH!!!) but it’s important to get the facts right.

Classic fishbowl? What’s that? People having a different opinion to yours, and explaining it, rather than simply saying something inane like “OMG THIS IS EVERYTHING!!!”. You made a post about Sorrell’s salary, with no reasoning why you thought it was wrong, and suggested a pressure hashtag without explaining what you wanted to achieve. Next time, may I suggest spending at least a few minutes reading about the history of WPP before asking people to support your suggestion?

Jesus you guys are a bunch of salty princesses. All of you get paid way too much. I learned to stop throwing self-pity parties a long time ago. But by all means let's organize a hashtag to call attention to the grossly over-paid industry that is advertising, marketing and PR. Every time that I play a video game on my phone that's rudely interrupted by an ad or I'm scrolling through my Twitter and I see an ad related to a conversation I had an hour ago for the Nth time today I'm reminded I signed a deal with the devil for this job. 🙄 And hell is having to listen to the complaints of grossly over privileged and under cultured people trying to sell tampons to women who shouldn't have to pay for them. 🚮
