Greedy Pig #1, Rick Wagoner CEO of GM 2.2 Million salary in 2008
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 03:36 PM by sarcasmo
Snip< Wagoner is eligible for up to $3.5 million in incentive payments and a grant of 165,563 shares of GM stock if he meets the internal targets. He will also receive 500,000 stock options that will vest over three years and 75,000 restricted stock options that will vest in three to five years.


Snip< GM lost a record $38.7 billion in 2007, largely due to a charge for unused tax credits. Excluding the charges and other one-time items, the company lost $23 million. That was down from a profit of $2.2 billion in 2006.

GM shares fell 54 cents, or 2 percent, to $22

Edited for link.

1. So wheres the analysis (and name calling) for the bank executives?
They've gotten far more from our government than any car company.

But hardly a word about those greedy bastards.

Why?

2. They have slithered behind the name of the bank, I will not let them slide either.

If you noticed he is only the first one I have posted. Who received a 33 percent raise from a failing company, and morally shouldn't have taken the raise.

3. "if he meets internal targets"
now, how the hell could these "internal targets" have possibly been met with the company facing bankruptcy?

It makes no sense at all.

12. expectations would have been set in 2k7, which means
that if he met them, then they knew their company was going to tank and did nothing.

Just sayin...

13. Maybe they wanted to get a huge amount of government money instead of improving the company
