Is there any other business paradigm in the world outside of sports where the employees demand a fixed percentage of revenue in salary from the business owners? Problematically for some franchise owners in various sports, some of their employees do make a yearly salary that exceeds the year-end profit (= salary of the owner) of the corporation (=franchise).

Perhaps that kind of scenario might happen in a fledgling business, where an owner is trying to gain a foothold and takes little in salary out of the corporation while plowing money into it. However, there is no effin way I'd allow any of my employees to make more than me in any given year in my (well-established) business. It's my company, not theirs.
