the more appropriate analogy would be...

your and your boss signed a contract so that every day you and your boss get a foot long sandwich delivered. the boss pays for delivery, the dining room, and incidentals. you split the sandwich 57/43 in your favour. the contract ended and the boss says... I don't like that contract. let's go 50/50.
