The problem is that people want to see a connection where there is none.

Don't try to get emotional because on one hand employees get laid off and on the other the CEO gets a huge bonus. You lack the insight to say if that was a bad move or the right call. Therefore it's incredibly naive to say that Kotick should've taken a pay cut to keep the other branches open. There's no point in keeping them open when they're not useful for the company anymore.

YOU as a consumer wouldn't act differently. Even if you get a pay raise, you wouldn't spend it on stuff that you don't want, only that some store owner doesn't have to close his shop or lay off his cashier.
