Here's a good one. Partner A starts a company and maintains steady work, but no growth for 5 years. He owns 100% of the equipment, but has no time to grow the company. Partner B is awarded minority ownership from time and efforts in growing said company. Now a new season begins: Partner A invests 20-25 hours weekly in production due to other commitments. Partner B invests 50-60 hrs. weekly into field production as well as grows the internal structure of the company from ground up. Partner A feels he should be paid a higher salary than Partner B considering ownership values. The question is this: If Partner B reduced the potential profits of the company by retaining a higher salary, how does the ownership of the company get affected? Please do not reply unless you have personal knowledge in the situation.
