i wonder what the compensation package for top level executives is? the housekeepers and groundskeepers and bell men are laid off but what about cutting some real dead weight at the top

MLP: I worked for the company for more than 10 years (called Maui Pinepple Company then)in the 40's-50's and although we really worked hard, I have fond memories of my employment there and the people I worked with. I miss seeing "100% Hawaiian" canned pineapples, I never purchased any other brand as long as we had Hawaii grown products. I am happy Hula girl juice (no ka oi) is still availabe. Also, Maui Gold pineapples can't be beat!!! Aloha

MLP is facing some difficult times. First, competition globally makes it hard for MLP to compete. The company has been losing money in agriculture the last 15-20 years. Dole and Del Monte pulled out a long time ago. Second, tourists are not coming to Maui as indicated by the latest survey. When Maui depends on the visitor industry for their livelihood, it better make sure planes are full. Third, don't think it's easy for a CEO to just layoff people...they hurt inside. MLP puts $50 million dollars into Maui's economy. I pray for them. They are good people.
