Pigs at the Top

Aug 6, 2007

The 50 top executives in Maryland had incomes worth 1.7 million dollars plus another 2.6 million dollars in stock options and other perks for the year, or a total of 4.3 million dollars on average! Some got much more.

These ridiculous amounts of money paid to the heads of corporations in Maryland are similar to what the top bosses get everywhere. Their high salaries come from our low pay and hard work. And we pay for their high salaries in high prices.
