CEO Wages Lagging Behind Productivity

A sad tale all too common among the lower orders of wage-slaves reaches all the way to the top of the hierarchy, "Despite fairly significant gains in companies' profit and revenue, total direct compensation for 65 CEOs in place at least two years rose just 1.4% last year, according to preliminary results from a survey by The Wall Street Journal and Hay Group."

Poor darlings.
