Now that's the "Hope and Change" that I can believe in..........that would be coming from the Obama administration.
Funny that all the right wingers on this board suggest that American workers make too much but they don't complain about the fact that in 1990 CEO pay was 107 times worker pay and in 2005 it was 411 times worker pay.
If CEO pay doesn't go down, then we need to insist our pay goes up.
And I don't feel sorry for any CEO who has to take a 50% pay cut, because chances are, they will still be making more than they did in 1990. And they will still be making 107 times more than us.
That piece of legislation would encompasses all employees not just CEOs and executives.
bobo has a comprehension problem.
Bobo I've never made any comments, nor suggested anything about wages...or in your case wage envy. If people don't like their wages, they should seek employment elsewhere. I did that moving up the food chain. I really don't care how much a CEO makes Bobo. Once again I don't have wage envy like you do. We live in America...not Russia. Please don't blanket your partisan hack ideas on the right wingers....which apparently, you know nothing about...but I didn't expect you to.
"Pay for Performance Act of 2009," would impose government controls on the pay of all employees -- not just top executives -- of companies that have received a capital investment from the U.S. government. It would, like the tax measure, be retroactive, changing the terms of compensation agreements already in place.
that will sure put a pucker in the teacher's union me guesses!

And the "standards" get set after the bill passes ...
This is BAD.
This is yet another example of a consistently disturbing trend of outright statism being implemented by this administration and Democrat Congress.
As America watches the next installment of American Idol or Dancing with the Stars, the very foundations of this nation are broken away beneath their collective feet...
Another step closer to this...
