Perks, Anyone?

I just read a list of some of the best executive perks - and I'm very jealous. Is it fair that shareholders are paying for the following perks?
  • $5,000 a year wine allowances
  • Unlimited free beer
  • Free haircuts
  • Free use of a company-owned fishing camp
  • Personal health coaches
  • Personal trainers
  • Dietitians
  • Personal use of the corporate jet
  • Living accommodation allowances
  • And ... taxes. Yep, some execs get all their taxes paid by their employers.
Granted, all jobs have perks. At my previous job, I was able to use the firm's baseball tickets. But there's a big difference between a $12 Mud Hens ticket and unlimited Budweiser. Thoughts?
