Great, may be the greedy bastard will use some of this money to keep our stores from being understaffed, would greatly reduce the frustrations that thousands of workers and managers are facing right now.

How much is a PR face worth? If it wasn't for International, YUM would be cutting Novak's salary.

True, but they're still greedy bastards who care little for their workers, like many corporations out there.

Hey great! My friend just told me KFC in the Colorado area stopped letting their workers take a meal home after their shift. They have to eat their meal in the lobby?!? What the hell is the difference? My friend wants to go home ASAP with his meal, that way customers won't pester him about not helping out in the kitchen even though his shift is over! Yet again more corporate fat cats trying to make the biggest profit so they can continue living the good life.

Perhaps its time for a lot of the good ole USA to have a big national strike much like what happens in Europe, France, etc.

After spending about 300 Million dollars buying LJS A&w and wasting 100's of millions of dollars on multi-branding. YUM now has to sell bunch of units layoff a lot of people to compensate for these executives mistakes. Where is the accoutability they always talk about??
No one at level of a director lost their job!! YUM has a lot of these useless people on the payroll. why not get rid of all the extra layers in the field. why do you have to sell stores and layoff dedicated people??not a fair appraoch!!!!!!!!!!
