The Rich Get Richer Etc.

The Rich Get Richer Etc.

Abby Zimet

Despite most of your hard times, CEOs at the country's 200 biggest companies earned 20% more last year than their equally undeserving year before. From Mother Jones, the top ten most absurdly overpaid executives. At the top: Viacom's Philippe Dauman, whose 149% raise gave him $84.5 million. Read it and rage; then, hopefully, act.


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
