Comcast CEO Brian Roberts received total compensation of $40.8 million last year, Corporate Library said. That includes a $2.7 million base salary and over $22 million in earnings related to stock options. Roberts received a relatively small "discretionary bonus" of $881,027 and a "very substantial" bonus of $7.4 million under a non-equity incentive plan, WWW.cnn.money.com
This Company has a horrible track record with Injured employee's. Brian Robert is one of the 5 most over paid CEO's yet they can't pay for the care of a employee that suffered a Traumatic brain injurey? cowards!! BOYCOT Comcast!!

You get what you paid for with Comcast as a product its crap! I have heard of several Injured workers now that have been screwed over by Comcast. Doesn't surprise me to see they fired a employee that suffered a Brain injury on the job! Hell Brian Roberts might have had to take a pay cut instead of 40.8 Million a year he might have had to slum it with only $40.0 Million. I would bet this injured worker been had to use Liberty Mutual as Brian roberts and the Ceo of Liberty are good buds this helps them keep the cost down also

This is why I chose not to use Comcast or Infinity. This Company has horrible Track record with Customers and employee’s. I don’t want to sound racist but if your not Jewish your not worth much to Brian Roberts. Do you see any top level African Americans or Latinos working for Comcast! He was the recipient of the 2004 Humanitarian Award from the Simon Wiesenthal Center. A Jewish organization that is anti white black brown!1
Simon Wiesenthal was the Nazi Hunter. If your not Jewish your not worth his time.

Terminating employee's for getting injured is nothing new for This group. Comcast Terminates them just before they get to a point in there recovery that could become very costly. This way they can always say "we don't deny treatment to any of our employee's" Traumatic brain Injury is a very costly Injury that takes years of treatment and Comcast just does'nt have this type of money!
Brian Roberts has three kids and a wife to feed. Beside his Nazi hunting friends need more help then American workers!!

Willful blindness
Comcast Terminates employee after suffering a Traumatic brain injury at work.

I believe Comcast’s dismissal of this man constitutes unlawful discrimination against a physically handicapped employee injured while at work. No question Comcast’s CEO Brian Roberts has bitten the hand that feeds him. Not with a nip, mind you, but a full-throttle chomp. This type of discrimination should stir national debate, worker’s injured on the job should not only have excellent care but the support of there Company. In talking with Comcast Headquartered in Philadelphia there management teams show Willful blindness, intentionally putting themselves in a position to be unaware of facts or criminal acts. Brain Roberts is the CEO and is responsible for his management teams actions or lack of actions.
My indictment of Comcast or Brian Roberts may be overwrought. But now that Comcast is not paying this man’s medical expenses and finding there only intent was to save money is disheartening. Its now up to us to pay for his care. Brian Roberts made $40.8 million last year, Comcast is now threatening to raise there rates? How high are they going Infinity?

I have served this county for 15 years and spent the last few years in the middle east. When I hear about the mistreatment of our workers here in the states it upsets me! We risk our lifes so the people of the middle east are free to lives as they wish yet here in the states are denied the care they need and are promissed by our Constitution. Comcast your now terminatd in my home!

Its not the first time I have heard of Comcast and its lack of Ordinary common sense.
Comcast is all about the Business of making Money and if your in there way god help you! They are now pitiching there new product Infinity and Frankly I am not buying what they sell until they start treating there customers and as I see here employees with a little respect.

Human rights violations ? But pure greed on the part of Comcast is not questionable here. Terminating an employee that suffered a brain injury at work is horrible. One might think Brian Roberts would understand that this type of Horrible treatment of sick or injured people is un-expectable .

Welcome to the new social Darwinist america! There is a concentrated campaign to deprive american workers of their rights not to mention a living wage and health insurance. Roberts is just the tip of the iceberg. Unfortunately a majority of americans have been convinced that employers should be allowed to abuse workers and ceos need to be overpaid. thanks teabaggers!

Comcast and Liberty Mutual deliver one two punch to Traumatic brain injured worker. Comcast Terminates him then Liberty Mutual denies his treatment. We are now paying for this man to be treated.
