The article reports that slightly more than half of the executives ranked in the Executive Compensation survey in the U.S. in 2005 took a pay cut, mostly in the form of lower or non-existent bonuses and worthless stock options. That can be compared to the three-year running average, in which slightly more than 40% took a pay cut.
