This Is How Much Gerry Harvey Gets Paid By Harvey Norman

Gerry Harvey loves to complain, whether it's about high hourly rates that don't exist, unspecified red tape or online competitors who would actually be cheaper than his stores even if they were forced to charge GST. One thing he probably isn't complaining about? His annual salary as Harvey Norman chairman.

In the last financial year, Harvey took home $1,029,300. That's a lot of money, though in the ranking of CEO pay for ASX 100 companies, it actually places him at the relatively lowly position of #96.

That's not Harvey's only source of income, of course, and even if he quit tomorrow, he'd be very comfortably off. The BRW Rich 200 estimates his worth at $1.5 billion dollars. The next time he complains about how selling online is unfair or that chefs get paid too much, it's going to be hard to resist pointing out that he's hardly gone broke because of current business practices.

    Is this a surprise to anyone? He's been tripping over cash the whole time he's been whinging!

    All capitalists are filth.

      Don't you have a CBD to occupy?

        Don't be silly DMan, it is before 2pm. Way to early to get out of bed for that :p.

    It's tall poppy articles like this that remind me that this is a Fairfax site.

    It wasn't that long ago he was whinging that his employee's get paid too much, particularly on weekends..! Even though most on 'em are on minimum wages...

      A friend of mine worked for them for around seven years, all of it on less than $18/h as an Administrative Assistant. Pretty sure she never saw a raise that wasn't forced by a minimum wage increase.

        Was she chained to the desk? Was she forced to stay working there?

          Just because you can up, and jump ship at the drop of a hat, doesn't mean everyone can..!

            But $18 is a pretty standard wage, even small towns have a Coles or Woolworths.

              Standard as in base..! It doesn't mean people can afford to just dump their job and shop around for another..? What is your point..?

    1 blonde girl and a book? Oh right, the article has the actual information.

    Guess what is written under the "MAGIC" on the hat?
    Do not mention the longhorn.

    It is clear that Gerry Harvey is getting underpaid because his evil employees are stealing all his money by being paid minimum wage. Now, if you excuse me, I'm going to go play on my leisure computer.
