Despite this, we just couldn't ignore Martha's new employment contract in the 10-Q filed by the company yesterday, which includes a $3 million "retention payment" for the domestic goddess. That's in addition to a $2 million salary, which according to the proxy the company filed last month, represents a $1.1 million raise. The contract also includes a wide range of other goodies, including "automobiles and drivers seven days a week", reimbursement for all business, travel and entertainment expenses (which seems like a pretty broad definition), security expenses and even internet and telephone expenses at her various homes.
