In 2009, the Pittsburgh aluminum producer Alcoa eliminated thousands of jobs and curbed production as the recession dried up demand.
The Houston Chronicle reports that the Alcoa CEO (Klaus Kleinfield) earned $11.2 million in his first full year as CEO, according to preliminary figures released in a regulatory filing. His Performance Bonus doubled to $3.8 million as he cut costs to counter the effect of a deteriorating business environment.
I wonder how many lost jobs are represented by his Bonus, never mind his salary?
