We saw recently, the Home Depot, give a large seaverence bonus to a departing CEO, when the Home Depot had been loosing money for the last 2 years. I tell you all, excessive CEO pay is part of the problem for American corporations. Many of these CEO,'s don't know what the hell they are doing, the workers are never paid a livable wage, and are not really motivated. Corporations would be better served by paying their workers,not the CEO.Take care of your workers, is why Japan continues to make better cars, and products than America.The Japanese corporate focus is on the Workers, not the CEO.! It is the workers that ultimately make or break the corporation in the long run, not the CEO.
