ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the results of an online poll on whether it was right to cap executive pay at companies receiving bailout funds. About 82% of the participants answered as yes, and said that executives cannot be receiving multimillion-dollar compensation packages when their companies are receiving billions of dollars in taxpayer money. Nearly 10% said no as the government should not dictate salaries for the private sector.
