Exxon Mobil disclosed the pay of its chief executive officer yesterday. His name is Lee Raymond.
He made 69.7 Million dollars last year.
If Lee worked every single day last year, 24 hours a day, that means he earned $191,000.00 a day.
He made $15,900 an hour.
He made $265.25 a minute.
He made $4.40 a second.
Let’s think about that for a (five dollar) second. He could pay for a gallon and a half of YOUR gas in less than one minute on the job. How does that make you feel, America?
