Planning for Life After, uh . . Retirement

“Be smart.  Save your money, get educated, buy property. Plan for life after retirement.”

Guess which enlightened CEO said the above to their employees?

The CEO of Exxon Mobil?  Maybe Best Buy?

Try, Dawn Rizos, the chief executive of the Lodge, a Dallas strip-club (albeit the high-end kind).  See, “Naked Capitalism” (The New York Times; 1/8/2011). 

To be fair, the original quote used the term “girls” instead of “employees,” and “life after dancing” instead of “retirement.”

I believe Henry Ford said something similar about a century ago — plus the part about paying a high enough wage, $5 a day, that Ford’s employees could actually afford the cars they manufactured.
