A Good Year at the Top

Apr 18, 2011

In 2010, CEO pay and benefits rose again so that their average “income” was more than eight and a half million dollars. These poor guys are getting by on only $4,200 per hour.

But that’s only an average and some made far more. The top prizes go to the heads of Viacom, the media company, and Occidental Petroleum. Those two raked off 84 million and 76 million dollars.

This is what the politicians mean when they say the recession is over!
