Why is this even news? Are people that desperate to print something?

Well I guess this seems to be a little excessive no matter what is going on with the economy. Why do CEO's need to be paid so much when the average person can not seem to get ahead.

Single crook makes $19 Million per year, when a normal person makes $2.5 million for his 50 years of work is what is wrong with this country.

Why shouldn't he make that much money? He brought in millions of dollars to his company, he should be rewarded. That's called capitalism. Equal pay for un-equal work is called communism.

I guess with all those problems with the Dreamliner and with getting future contracts with the government, this is all he is entitled to. Just imagine what he would have got if he did something right.

Ask the 47 million americans without health insurance what is wrong.

I still don't understand what is wrong. Because people don't have health insurance, this guy shouldn't get paid? As long as he's not stealing money from the company or something, there's nothing wrong with it. That's the reason people work hard and try to become a CEO or whatever.

Everytime there is a law passed to try to limit exec ripoff salaries - a tax attorney will find a way around it - they make these huge complex formulas to make sure they still take care of themselves - it doesn't matter if the company makes a penny! Congress has no right to talk - and most other politicians - they all do it!

He must be doing something right, he wouldn't be getting 19million if the company didn't have it to give. They are still making loads of airplanes and whatever to get that money, it's not like he is getting a bonus for doing nothing but sitting at a desk. I'm sure he is thanking the govt, they paid good money for lots of airplanes, it's not like they are giving him free money.

Do you realy think that 47 million american's don't have health insurance because they didn't go to college?

So I should take a pay cut and give my money to someone else? This guy worked his way to a powerful, profitable position, and he deserves to be rewarded. That's the American way. If everyone made the same amount of money and got the same benefits no matter how hard they worked, whats the motivation to work hard at all? If that's people's attitude, then they can sit home with no job forever for all I care. What does going to college have to do with not having health insurance? Tons of people that don't have a degree have health insurance, and make a fair amount of money at the same time.

Who is talking about the same pay?And since when $500000 isn't a reward?And what is the reason for this 47 million not to have insurance?Is it that they don't want it or it's because they don't get rewarded right?So when is about normal people is fair amount of money?When we talk about crooks(CEO's) there is no limit they work hard for it.
