Paresh,

The salary report, as always, is well presented. The salary comparison is,
however, unnecessary, pointless, and may be misused. It seems to pit the
rates in one country against that of another, and is an invitation for
conflict. Please consider removing that section from the report.

Thanks,
Edwin
