Pay Czar Slashes Pay; Makes Governance Changes

In a striking display of government authority, pay czar Kenneth Feinberg is taking a knife to the pay packages of companies receiving U.S. funds. According to media reports, the government will slash the compensation of the 25 highest-paid employees at the seven firms receiving the most aid. The biggest drop will be to salaries, which will plummet 90% on average, while total compensation will fall by about 50%. The reports also state that no top executive at AIG’s financial products unit, which bore the blame of the insurer’s near-collapse last year, will make more than $200,000. And any perks packages that total more than $25,000 at these firms will have to be approved by Feinberg.


Now that's a step in the right direction. What the hell took so long?

    Got no idea, girl. However, didn’t know if you saw this, but follow our logic, k? This Finite Existence is like a triangle: our base is earth, yet, as we grow older, we finally succumb to our demise till we meet our Maker (top of the triangle). So, HEAR YE! O HEAR YE!! Meet me Upstairs in the Great Beyond for a celebration of our resurrection where we'll have a BIG-OL party till well after sundown. God bless.
