Impoverished ad people are supposed to be as plentiful as snowballs
in summer. Which is why Nabs, the industry charity, has always had a bit
of a credibility problem when it passes round the begging bowl.
The fact is that agency bosses on a lottery winner's pay are far
outnumbered by modestly rewarded agency toilers who get chucked out of
the basket as soon as the balloon starts going down. It would be sheer
hypocrisy for an industry that claims its most valuable assets come up
in the lift each morning to desert Nabs now.
