CEOs with the highest pay
Chief executives at the largest US companies were paid $5,000 an hour, on average, in 2012, making more in 11 hours than the typical family earned all year.

"The 200 highest-paid CEOs saw their pay go up 16% last year"
Is anyone still unclear as to what is going on in this country?
CEO'S salary and bonuses should be cut, how can someone earn so much money. This is GREED.
How about spend some of that wealth on employees salaries. After all they are the ones keeping you RICH, RICH, RICH.
They worry about where they will fly to for dinner, we worry about having dinner on the table.
There should be limits on CEO's salaries and bonus's, how about supplying decent healthcare for their employees.
excessive CEO pay is theft of our 401K money.
if a private company wants to pay outrageous salaries to their CEO - go right ahead.
but a PUBLIC company with stock perhaps in anyone's 401K-IRA mutual fund should not be throwing so much cash and stock at CEO's.
I'd like to see the CEOs be really courageous, and spur the economy by taking MAJOR pay cuts, and hiring more people with living wage jobs. There are too many families where the income earners need multiple jobs to live at or slightly above the poverty level. The current problem with our capitalistic experiment is the top .5% is hoarding the recovery for itself. They languish in their decadence and live in denial of the rest of the country- especially the young well educated who are begging for suitable employment. Perhaps when the economy sputters and stalls, corporate boards will recognize that what this country/economy needs is to increase employment, hire more people with genuine living wage positions. This will fuel our economy, not the current practice of wastefully increasing the decadent wealth of CEOs.
CEO's and Boards of Directors are all way over paid for their positions. This is what's wrong with Corporate America they pay people of little value high wages with golden parachutes no matter what their performances are. They run a Company or Country into the ground, loose billions of dollars, ship jobs overseas and still get bonuses in the millions.
Wonder where the Dumocrats suggesting RICH CEO are Repubs.
Ellison is a Democrat, Kotick is a Republican, Moonves is Dem, Zaslav is Dem, James Crowe is Democrat, Bracken is Republican, Robert Iger is Dem, Mayer is Dem, Shultz is Dem, Beniof is Ind, but gave money in past to both.
SO, of the TOP 10...SEVEN are Dems, or give SIGNIFICANT amounts of money to Democrats,
Yet it's the LIB left that suggest it's the Republicans that are the ones doing this.
Too bad the damn truth doesn't match the myth you clowns follow.
Brilliant...idiots like Occupy out destroying property all the while your Democrats are getting their money from CEO from the RICHEST in WORLD.
Legal theft and morally bankrupt, courtesy of American Capitalism. The deal with the paper pushers: you give me what I want, I will give you what you want, nonebody is watching. So what if they can't pay their health insurance. It is them versus us. Long live America home of the stupid.
The average person makes about a million dollars in a thirty years! Think about it!!!!
I love it, less than 1 page of posts and already at least 1 dummy not willing to do their homework before proving they should return to their village, and maintain Village Idiot status.
THIS article is NOT the place to blast Republicans on CEO pay..as SEVEN are Dems, 2 are Republicans and 1 Indy...OH, and Buffet isn't listed, but I'm sure he's near top too.
YES, ALL of these give MIGHTY amounts to Democrats, to keep them in control...Yet Dumocrats support and believe them when they suggest it's Repubs...Too bad the FACTS don't match up, but keep drinking the Kool Aid, Dummies.
All I can say is this has gotten totally out of control. If people would stop using there products and stop feeding these company's then you would see a decline in these numbers. The only CEO pay I see as sensible is the yahoo CEO. And as far as the rest I will not support or buy there products period.
This is fine that they get this kind of money.Just make sure we cut the minimum wage
and raise prices to cover it.Don`t dip into profits.
