I have zero issues paying an extra 100 bucks more than a LEO.
Have you seen some of the starting salaries some of these kids are expected to live on?
And being in a sales manager position for a 100mm corporation. If a distributor of mine violated a distribution agreement (LGS/LEO program) I would cut them off as a distributor, they loose $$$ and secondary traffic in their store for one regular joe to buy into the program? For sure they wouldn't risk it.
