Hang up and buy
Those who have seen the Amazon phone say it's a model of simplicity. It has only one button: “Buy now!”
They saw the light: A Seattle city council committee has proposed increasing the pay of Seattle City Light's chief executive officer to $305,000 a year to put it closer in line with the salaries of utility CEOs at Snohomish County PUD and Tacoma Public Utility, who make $367,000 and $319,000, respectively.
That does seem a little much to pay a public servant. It's not like this is a job crucial to the community, like a university football coach. (University of Washington head football coach Chris Petersen makes $3.6 million a year.)
But fair's fair. Having recently approved a $15 an hour minimum wage, Seattle's city council apparently thought more people should get a little bump in pay.
