Moishe Rosenberg, a successful New York business owner was interviewing applicants for an engineering position at his company. Reaching the end of a job interview, Rosenberg asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"
The Engineer said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."
Rosenberg said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years say, a red Corvette?"
The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"
Moishe Rosenberg replied, "Yeah, but you started."
