LINK TO STORY No surprise there ... same trend in the UK. Especially like that the CEO of healthcare company McKesson earned nearly $150 million. These CEOs usually indirectly control the committees that fix their pay, but as meritocratic superhumans I'm sure they are good judges of their own worth and it is only fitting that they are rewarded further as the economy continues to tank and the average American wage falls. Don't however just be green with envy or jealous of your betters. If you work hard, you can get there too; it is well known that everyone who works hard is able to get rich standing between ordinary Americans and the kind of health care security available to all in many other developed and undeveloped countries.
