You can only hope to see more stuff like this as restaurants and their workers are in a brutal spot with the Coronavirus pandemic.
Texas Roadhouse CEO Kent Taylor will be giving up his salary and bonus through January 7, 2021 to help pay frontline workers for his chain of restaurants.
A spokesperson for the company said, “Kent Taylor has always said that Texas Roadhouse is a People-company that just happens to serve great steaks. His donation of his salary and bonus to help employees is the embodiment of that saying.”
“We are blessed to have his leadership.”
His salary and bonus are each about $525,000, and the guy is worth about $392 Million (WallLine).
He’ll be OK.
According to The Hill, Taylor also just donated $5 million to Andy’s Outreach, “which he described as charitable fund that help support the company’s employees during ‘times of need.'”
