lars have talked nonesense in most of the case, but there is something that some people might get confused about, why Microsoft doesn't use its money to pay more to its workers.
If you are CEO of a public company, you are legally responsible for protecting the shareholders' investment. Shareholders can sue you and your company if they think that you are wasting company's money. For example, if they think you are paying too much to
your workers than they might sue. Costco, a big retailer in America is paying above average to its workers, and investors do not like it and pressure costco to stop paying that high. That's how Wall Street work.
Again, every lie and stupid attack against Microsoft is using ignorance to make you believe in them. That's almost have been the case.
