Some news makes you want to go postal
Think Progress passes along news that makes you want to hurl (or riot):
Average Americans are struggling to keep up with persistently high gas prices, now approaching $3 a gallon. Testifying before Congress last November, Exxon CEO Lee Raymond blamed the problem on”global supply and demand” and assured the public that”we’re all in this together.”
Last year, Raymond made due with”a total compensation package” of just $69.7 million or $190,915 a day, including weekends.
Oh, and guess what? Look at his retirement package, as you fill up your tank and sell your first-born (ABC):
Exxon is giving Lee Raymond one of the most generous retirement packages in history, nearly $400 million, including pension, stock options and other perks, such as a $1 million consulting deal, two years of home security, personal security, a car and driver, and use of a corporate jet for professional purposes.
What do you say behind that sh*t?
