If Bill Gates offered you a 1 year deal for $2m and 12 weeks leave to be his chauffeur would you take it? I assume if after 1 year he said times are tough and offered you only $1.9m and cut your leave to 11 weeks leave you'd tell him to **** off because he's not giving anything up?
If Bill Gates' chauffeur generated millions of dollars in revenue, then he probably would have a case for keeping that level of pay. Barring that, the analogy makes no sense.
