Harley Donates to Relief Efforts for Japan

By Bud Wilkinson of

The Harley-Davidson Foundation announced this week that it has donated $250,000 – a paltry sum considering that Harley CEO Keith E. Wandell was compensated $6.4 million last year – to support relief efforts in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami. The foundation’s contribution was made to the American Red Cross. Just thinking out loud, but it’s normal to tip 15 to 20 percent for good service in a restaurant and 15 percent of what Wandell makes would be $960,000. Harley’s tip to Japan to help with the recovery? A little more 5 percent.
