I Have a Bigger Salary Than The Co-Founders Of Google...

For the third year in a row the CEO and co-founders of google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin received a salary of $1. Interesting, and here I am thinking that I'm underpaid. Their main compensation comes from returns on their ownership of google. As major shareholders, their personal wealth is tied directly to the stock price appreciation and performance. Shares of google stock closed Tuesday at $472.60 each. Guess this helps out in between the pay checks...

Warren Buffett only pays himself $100,000 for people the third richest person that's a small paycheck. Larry Page and Sergey Brin are big time Buffett followers.

I created a blog to help military members with their finances and wondered if you would like to exchange links.
