  1. Sey was a large-caliber sports champion, author, and graduated from a prestigious university. Apparently until the lockdown she had an illustrious career at Levi’s. So why on retiring is she worth only $2.4 million? To me that’s cause for envy, but to senior management types, she’s one of the working poor.
