The horrible suffering inflicted on America’s freedom loving CEOs is a unique burden no good ole boy should ever be forced to endure. It’s inhuman, it’s un-American, and you can understand why many zillionaires are working so hard to kick that soshilist hippie commie black panther capitalism-hating ursuper out of the White House:
(USA Today) — The head of a typical public company made $9.6 million in 2011, according to an analysis by The Associated Press using data from Equilar, an executive pay research firm.That was up more than 6% from the previous year. The figure is also the highest since the AP began tracking executive compensation in 2006.
Companies trimmed cash bonuses but handed out more in stock awards. For shareholder activists who have long criticized CEO pay as exorbitant, that was a victory of sorts.
Obviously, what CEOs must have is a return to the policies and people who destroyed the economy and cut the stock market in half. Get back on track to the downside of that chart heading into 2008, they’ll be raking it in! Oh, and in the meantime we’re not allowed to discuss rival Mitt Romney’s economic job creating claim to fame at Bain because that wouldn’t be fair.
