The First Shall Become...

It's amazing what happens when you have policies that favor the rich....  They get richer even while the rest of us struggle!  According to a survey released by research firm Corporate Library, C.E.O. salaries rose by 15% in 2003.  Among top executives at larger companies (those that are listed on the Standard Poor's 500-stock index) compensation rose by a median of 22.2%.  C.E.O.'s in the telecommunications and securities commodities sectors now earn a median of $8 million per year.  Barry Diller, chief executive of InterActiveCorp, had the highest salary in 2003.  He received $156 million.
