You are right on target. He had to be making over $75k per year. Greed got the best of him. Too bad….I bet he will not make that in jail.

you get real.

He was in charge of all home deliveries. He oversaw the actions of District Managers and Route delivery personnel.

If anything, $75K may fall short of what he made.

The newspaper doesn’t pay their distribution people a living wage, unfortunately. Not an excuse, but I’ll be he was earning under $20k / year working there.

He was the circulation manager … He had acces to enough money to steal between 50 and 100 thousand dollars … Sounds pretty naive to think he was making less than $20K

Using your “victim logic” one would have to come to the conclusion that all the homeless people in the world should be master criminals by now.
