Executive pay keeps rising, Guardian survey finds
Julia Finch and Simon Bowers
"Executives at Britain's top companies saw their basic salaries leap 10% last year, despite the onset of the worst global recession in decades, in which their companies lost almost a third of their value amid a record decline in the FTSE.
"The Guardian's annual survey of boardroom pay reveals that the full- and part-time directors of the FTSE 100, the premier league of British business, shared between them more than £1bn.
"Bonus payouts were lower, but the basic salary hikes were more than three times the 3.1% average pay rise for ordinary workers in the private sector. The big rise in directors' basic pay - more than double the rate of inflation last year - came as many of their companies were imposing pay freezes on staff and starting huge redundancy programmes to slash costs."
