“Churn” is such a great term

Please, please, please read this article on compensation in the nonprofit sector from Angela Francis at Nonprofit Finance Fund! Read it!

In brief, the numbers don’t look good. Perhaps instead of focusing our attention and outrage on one executive’s high compensation, we should actually be discussing the implications of improving pay and benefits for nonprofit workers. Not out of greed, or even fairness, but out of necessity. Without some real changes to our system, we will continue to drive idealistic, talented, educated people away—the very people we need to keep on board if we are to solve the existential crisis facing our sector.

Exactly, right?
