Approximately, because this isn’t GoodMathBadMath, four individuals in the biggest offices at Ford Motor Company received $45,000,000 in coin above and beyond their stated salaries. These men are CEO Alan Mulally (who has sucked in the $ before); CFO Don Leclair, President of the Americas Mark Fields; and Ford Europe VP Lewis Booth.

Divided amongst Ford’s regular, run-of-the-mill, garden variety, commonplace workforce around the world, this money would have equated to a piddling $157.24. Depending on your view of the glass, (half-full or half-empty), that could either: buy a nice meal out for the family or – more likely – sicken you. I’ll go with sicken.
