Must be the money
If there’s one thing that most people know about major corporation CEOs, it’s this: They get paid. A lot. However, according to a March Reuters review of regulatory findings, pay increases for CEOs were not on the same level in 2013 as they were previously. Of the 46 S&P 500 companies that disclosed CEO pay raises before March 11, the average median compensation increase only totaled 1 percent. Meanwhile, in 2012, those same 46 companies saw a median pay increase of 15 percent.
