Thankfully, we have some news that does not include politics, what is or is not being built in Manhattan, the plugged oil well in the Gulf and the worst kept secret of the year, where is Chelsea Clinton getting married. We found some great news, sort of, on a pay cut for a CEO.
Despite a 6 percent pay cut, Aetna CEO Ron Williams’ compensation in 2009 was valued at more than $18 million, making his pay package $5 million higher than WellPoint’s Angela Braly. Braly, you may recall, was highly criticized for receiving a 51 percent compensation increase from 2008 to 2009 on the heels of controversial premium rate increases for individual policy holders.
On second thought, we might all want to stick to politics!
