Default Polaris Lays Off 100 Employs

So they lay off 100 people cause snowmobile and off road vehicles.
100 people can make a difference on the market. They did not say if any of them were at there Mexico plant.

Why don't the CEO take a pay cut to help balance the budget

Big business doesn't work that way.
If each of those 100 workers made for example, $25K per year, laying them off equates to 2.5 Million if my math is correct. That's just salary, then add any benefits and let's not forget the added cost of workman's comp insurance and Polaris' share of Social Security.

I don't think if the CEO worked for free the amount "saved" would offset the bigger expenditure. JMO
