It happened at long last: Aalt Dijkhuizen and the other two executive members of Wageningen UR will soon earn less than Balkenende.
If Balkenende is the standard, then Dijkhuizen's three hundred and fifty thousand euros per year is way below. Is that fair at all? Aalt is an executive chairman, while Jan-Peter will be no more than a partner at E&Y. Added to this, Aalt has completed three executive terms nicely.
The same can't be said of JP and his broken up cabinet.
