business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Boston Globe reports that a study conducted by the Institute for Policy Studies and United for a Fair Economy has found that CEOs at companies that outsourced jobs are getting bigger raises than the average US chief executive, averaging a 46 percent hike in compensation as opposed to the national average of a nine percent increase.

The report also said that average CEO pay at the "top 50" outsourcing companies was $10.4 million last year, compared with $8.1 million for the total list of 365 companies.

We just found these to be interesting numbers worth sharing…

It also should be noted, in the interest of fairness, that the Globe identified the two organizations as “left leaning.” Which may not diminish the accuracy of the numbers, but does explain the timing of their release.
