    better than...

    Which are correct:

    1) You are better than to be working for a man like him.

    2) You are better than working for a man like him.
    MEANING: You are too good to be working for a man like him.

    3) You are better than to say stuff like that.

    4) You are better than saying stuff like that.
    MEANING: You are too good to say stuff like that.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
