Unfair compensation between company owners is a red flag signaling a potential business breakup.
This scenario typically unfolds in the following way. Individual A is the founder of the business. He is older, experienced in the business, is the rainmaker and is the sole owner of the business. Individual B is younger, less experienced in the business, has little or no clients and is a salaried employee. Think Ebenezer Scrooge and Bob Cratchit.
