 Omaha Goodwill executives are some of the top paid in the country. That according to a recent investigation by the Omaha World-Herald. 
 
     A high end, six figure salary for the CEO, and more than a dozen other lucrative deals for managers.  Henry Cordes with the Omaha World-Herald is here to talk about this investigation.  
 
     A recent Omaha World-Herald investigation found top executives with Goodwill Omaha get a pretty good paycheck.  In fact the investigation revealed that Goodwill Omaha spends a higher percentage of it's budget on compensation for its CEO than almost any other Goodwill in the country.  Fourteen executives at Goodwill Omaha make more than $100,000. At one point, CEO Frank McGree took in more than $900,000 in salary and bonuses.
 
     Some former employees have come forward questioning if the high salaries are compromising the mission of Goodwill training and helping disabled people find jobs.
